From the illustrator of the #1 smash hit "The Day the Crayons Quit" comes an imaginative tale of friendship in a world where what makes us different isn't nearly as important as what makes us the same. When a boy discovers a single-propeller airplane in his closet, he does what any young adventurer would do: He flies it into outer space! Millions of miles from Earth, the plane begins to sputter and quake, its fuel tank on empty. The boy executes a daring landing on the moon . . . but there s no telling what kind of slimy, slithering, tentacled, fangtoothed monsters lurk in the darkness! (Plus, it s dark and lonely out there.) Coincidentally, engine trouble has stranded a young Martian on the other side of the moon, and he s just as frightened and alone. Martian, Earthling it s all the same when you re in need of a friend."
