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.
