Interest Age 7+ Reading Age 7  |  Fact and fiction are cleverly combined in this space travel adventure story. It’s 2075 and young Billy is setting off for a trip into space with his grandad on his restored spaceship. And what a time they have, passing all the planets from Mercury to Pluto before returning home, navigating their way through an asteroid belt on the way. Each short chapter is full of information about the galaxy, and packed with illustrations by Tony Ross too.
