How to be on the Moon by Viviane Schwartz

How to be on the Moon
by Viviane Schwarz

Best friends Anna and Crocodile are going on another intrepid adventure – this time, to the moon! But soaring into the space is no simple task. To start with, it’s very far away. Then there’s the not-so-simple matter of building a rocket. And there are the sandwiches to make for the journey. But when Anna and Crocodile set their sights on something, nothing can stand in their way... Bursting with sharp, funny dialogue and illuminated by Viviane’s out-of-this-world illustrations, this is a story that celebrates irrepressible curiosity and the magic of imaginative play.
