Publisher's Description

This world, decides Nicholas, is too noisy for him. Time to take a trip. He packs a snack, puts on his suit, and takes off . . . to the utterly quiet craters and vast deserts of the distant moon. In this utterly charming picture book, the allure of space travel and the longing for peace and quiet entice a young boy to take his space rocket to the moon for a picnic.

Author Bio

Master minimalist Leo Landry once again shares the power of secret worlds in this unique fantasy for young children. A love of the moon and all things Apollo originated in Leo’s childhood. He says he has distinct memories of playing a recording of the first moon landing while jumping off the front porch. He and his family live in Easton, Massachusetts.
