This review is from: The Way Back Home (Hardcover)
This book is crammed full of fantastic art from what must be one of the best childrens authors for a long time.
It's cute and stylish, unmistakably Oliver Jeffers.
I don't think the story is as strong as his other books, but it is still a great story, and the very last page is brilliant!
A little boy flies his plane higher and higher until he runs out of petrol and becomes stranded on the moon, thankfully he manages to make a friend when a passing Martian crash lands after his engine fails. Will they both make it back home? And will they ever speak again?
