Product Details


The writing is childlike, sensitive, and often witty. The illustrations, created with pencils, crayons, and watercolors, become increasingly intricate and colorful as the imaginative adventure progresses…Given the predominance of boys in picture books featuring space travel, it’s refreshing to see Anna, with her brown skin, red dress, and can-do spirit, take the lead here. A fine companion volume to Schwarz’s How to Find Gold (2016).

The moon and Earth are rendered in intriguing textural and color combinations. The contrast between Anna’s and Crocodile’s personalities allows audiences of different inclinations a way into the story. The story is fun—and the artwork shines.
