The art style doesn't thrill me, but the story and the humor are so enjoyable that I have to recommend this. Obviously we've all stayed awake at night wondering how to get sunflowers on the moon, right? The level of detail in the 24 step plan is impressive, and I cannot imagine how much time Gerstein spent putting this together. I read it aloud to my son, and had to stop a couple of times because he and his dad were laughing so much. Inventors, tinkerers, builders, engineers, and scientists will especially get a kick out of this one.

When a messy-haired kid with a gap-toothed grin decides that the moon looks sad, he devises an ingenious 24-step plan to bicycle to the moon and perk it up with some sunflowers. Though it's based on a handful of real scientific facts, most of the boy's plan is laughably implausible, yet readers won't be able to resist his unshakable optimism. Loaded with the kind of wacky ideas that kids love - what's not awesome about a giant slingshot to the moon? - and illustrated with delightfully detailed cartoons, this quirky how-to guide (from Caldecott Medalist Mordicai Gerstein) is a great pick for older kids and aspiring engineers.
