Hold on Tight by Claire Carpenter


Hold on Tight by Claire Carpenter

Tommy loves the moon and decides one day he'd like to go there himself. His bold dream is dismissed as nonsense by everyone around him, including his parents and the clever little girl next door. But with bravery, persistence and some unexpected help from a fiery new friend, Tommy eventually makes his dream come true. Hold on Tight inspires children to believe in themselves and to follow their dreams, come what may.


When we really put our mind to something, hidden hands always seem to help us along the way towards fulfilment. Hold on Tight conveys a timeless lesson about what is possible that any young mind can grasp. Memorable and powerful. -- Tom Butler-Bowdon, author of 50 Self-Help Classics
