Prize-winning author Peter Bently tells a rollickingly good story in this saga of a shopping trip with a difference. Simon the squirrel is sent down to the shops by his mother to get a few things - including cheese. But when Simon decides that the moon would provide the best cheese he takes off on a bold trip to go shopping on the moon! Ebullient rhyming couplets capture the roller-coaster shopping trip with a difference.
When Simon the squirrel's mum sends him off to the shop, Simon decides to fly to the moon in Old Uncle Somerset's hot air balloon in search of cheese. Shopping in outer space is very exciting, but proves to be a bit of a distraction...
