Summary

Step 1: Get a bicycle. Step 2: Build a slingshot. Step 3: Ask NASA to loan you a spacesuit . . .In this simple, step-by-step instructional picture book, learn how you too can visit the moon on your bicycle! All you need is a very long garden hose, a very large slingshot, a borrowed spacesuit, and a bicycle . . . and plenty of imagination. With tongue firmly in cheek, Caldecott Medal winner Mordicai Gerstein outlines the steps needed in glorious comic book-style panels and a deadpan voice, leaving nothing out: the food you'll eat, how to deal with loneliness in space, how to water those sunflower seeds once they're planted - even how to deal with the media attention back home after a successful trip. An inspired work of whimsy, this is a spacefaring adventure for daydreamers and a starter kit for the imagination.
