This is an imaginative and magical picture book by award-winning author/illustrator Jill Murphy, creator of Peace at Last, A Quiet Night In and other stories featuring the Large family. Baby Bear wants to go to the moon and so searches around the house until he finds a rocket (a cardboard box), a space-helmet (a colander) and space-boots (his wellies). All set, he blasts off out of the chimney and into the night. Joined by an owl, Baby Bear soars high into the night sky until finally they reach the moon. Of course, when he returns to earth for his bath, his mother doesn't believe where he has been. Jill Murphy captures Baby Bear's sense of high adventure and his innocence, as he reaches for his dream, in both the simple easy-to-read-aloud text and in the bold, colourful illustrations.
