The Way Back Home Gift Set by Oliver JeffersFly to the moon and back in this star-spangled adventure and contact your own alien with an intergalactic walkie-talkie! One day a boy finds an aeroplane in his cupboard. Up, up, up and away he flies, high into the sky. He whizzes past clouds and stars until suddenly, phut, phut phut, the plane runs out of petrol...Miles from earth, the boy crash lands on the moon. Just as he is beginning to get cold and lonely, a Martian appears from the darkness - could this be the start of an unlikely friendship? And will the boy ever manage to get home again? Make extraterrestrial contact with an intergalactic walkie-talkie and a special miniature hardback edition of 'The Way Back Home'.
-wateringly irresistible The Guardian Praise for 'Lost and Found': 'An uplifting story...pictures of such spare beauty...suffused with a dreamlike quality.
'Oliver Jeffers makes impressive use of space in this affecting story of friendship...illustrations capture feelings of loss and loneliness through the most delicate nuances of facial expression...and body language.'
'How to Catch a Star': 'The best recent picture book by light years... stylishly spellbinding.'
'A story about possibilities and disappointments with a triumphant ending, all of which Jeffers captures through the beautifully expressive changing moods of his little boy.'
