Count the stars up in the sky.
The Man-in-the-Moon is flying by . . .
On a night when Nora just can't get to sleep, she looks out at the moon and watches it turn dark. How could this happen? Together with her brother, Jack, Nora sets off into the sky aboard Jack's rocket.
Up and up and up—
The rocket lands on the moon! But will Nora and Jack be able to give the moon back its light before morning comes?
Dean Morrissey has fashioned a modern-day fairy tale complete with an ingenious red rocket that could only come from the mind of a true artist—or a small boy. Climb aboard for a bedtime trip beyond your wildest dreams.
