This is a tale of space adventure for beginning readers. It tells the tale of a boy on Earth with his eyes to the sky, who finds out he's not the only one in the solar system with the desire to visit other planets.
The story uses simple words and sentence structure, with ample repetition to help build confidence in the early reader. While ultimately fanciful in nature, the story also has a science-based background that helps introduce young readers to the notion of exploring other planets in the solar system. Information in the back of the book will be helpful for parents, teachers, and caregivers who would like to provide factual details about Mars to interested readers.

"I find that this book is a fun way to encourage discussion in the classroom and for children to talk about other planets in our solar system and beyond." - H.K. Gilbert
