The Boy Who Climbed into the Moon

Review

A child's imagination is a wonderful thing and Paul's is more wonderful and vivid than many. He has a theory - that the moon is not really the moon but a great big hole in the sky.

Luckily, many of the residents in Paul's apartment building have odd ideas and eccentricities of their own and are only too happy to help him test his theory by climbing up to the roof and taking a very long ladder.

Beautiful colour illustrations complement a surreal modern fairytale, which fluent young readers will enjoy on their own but which could equally well be read aloud.
