From the Back Cover:

There are some strange ideas floating around in Paul's apartment block. There's Molly who now calls herself Clara, whose brother hides under a paper bag. Then there's Clarence the poodle who thinks he can fly. . . . But the strangest notion of all is Paul's. You see, Paul believes that the moon is not the moon but a great hole in the sky. And he knows that sausages are better than war. How on earth (or not) will he find out if he is bonkers or a genius? With a few equally bonkers (or genius) helpers and a very long ladder, that's how! From a master of magical realism and a celebrated artist comes another delightfully outrageous expedition.
