New cover reissue of this magical story from award-winning international bestselling picture book creator of Lost and Found, Oliver Jeffers.

Once there as a boy, and one day, he found an aeroplane in his cupboard...

He didn't remember leaving it in there, but he thought he'd take it out for a go right away. At first, all went well and the plane flew higher and higher and higher until... suddenly, with a splutter, it ran out of petrol. The boy was stuck on the moon... and he was not alone...
