Max's Marvellous Journey to the Moon

Maria Sproulle

Max, a young boy who dreams of going "where no one would bother him," wants to travel to the moon.
But how will he get there? Perhaps his great-uncle, Professor Boggle, who is always inventing weird and wonderful things, can help? Or his clever computer, Caracatus?
Humphrey, the Professor's talking cat, doesn't think so, but happens to be on board the spaceship when Max accidentally sets off into outer space.
It's a dangerous trip. What will he find when he gets there? It couldn't be aliens, could it?
