How to Bicycle to the Moon to Plant Sunflowers:A Simple but Brilliant Plan in 24 Easy Steps

Mordicai Gerstein

A young boy with spiky red hair and glasses decides the moon needs sunflowers to cheer it up. He outlines his brilliant plan for space travel wearing a suit borrowed from NASA, using truck inner tubes for a giant slingshot and 238,900 miles of garden hose for a tightrope to the moon. The instructions are inventive, straightforward, and outlandish. Caldecott medalist Gerstein’s comic illustrations complement the humorous deadpan narration. Join this thrilling flight to the moon! Ages 5-7
