Synopsis

Nico is a wild and adventurous boy—never-mind that he's still crawling. One afternoon, he crawls right past his family and out the door. Luckily some balloons are close at hand to carry him to the farthest stars. He's happy there, playing on the moon. Will he come home? Only just in time to start kindergarten.

A fanciful meandering story with light-hearted 'airy' illustrations—perfect for floating.

The idea of a small child stranded on the moon for three years is less than reassuring, especially as his voyage begins because his parents are too busy watching basketball and painting fingernails to notice what is happening with their child.

Precisely drawn cartoon vignettes have a surreal quality keenly attuned to the tale's fantastical elements, and Robledo peppers the pages with whimsical detail, from the floating household objects (a teapot, a flashlight, a bottle of ink) to the characters' amusingly improbable hairstyles.
