Young Children

They jump over trenches and see craters and mountains on the moon’s surface and even Earth in the faraway distance. One student takes a break to draw some pictures, falls asleep, and wakes up to discover that the rest of the class and the spaceship are gone. How the student passes the time waiting to be rescued makes for a funny and unexpected adventure that will enchant children all over the galaxy.


This is another book where the cover and the title caught my attention. I didn’t even read the summary, I just jumped right in. What the summary doesn’t tell you is that this is a wordless story. These are always fun because you can make up your own dialogue to go along with the story.


I don’t want to give away any spoilers to this INCREIBLY CUTE story so all I’ll say is that this story would make a perfect Pixar short.


And don’t just flip through the pages, take your time and really look at the pictures.
