The Lovereading4Kids comment

This story zips along, keeping the pages turning as the protagonists whirl through a colourful sequence of zany scenarios - all great fun! Niamh Sharkey's style is all her own, her characters jumping off the page with inimitable vivacity. This title is definitely one to watch.

You're in the right place if you want some gorgeous activity sheet packs for this title (click here to download) or to celebrate your own Picture Book Picnic with friends and family.

Over the hills, across the sea, and up to the moon they go, gathering a band of free-range friends on the way. But, suddenly, from across the milky way, home has a distant allure...
