Title: The Way Back Home
I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again.
Oliver Jeffers knows his way around a picture book. There’s no one really quite like him, his out there stories, his simple characters, his humour, timing and his childishly simple illustrations are just so…
And it’d be hard work to make it look this simple.
A young boy on an aeroplane adventure and a young alien on a journey both find themselves crashed on the moon. After figuring out they were both in a similar predicament they hatch a plan to repair their transport and get home.
The boy parachutes back to earth to get the required equipment but is distracted by his favourite television show.
Will he remember to help out his new friend?
Will they both make it home?
And what is his favourite television show anyway?
These things may be revealed if you read through to the end of this fabulously unique and deliciously funny tale.
