Peter and Anneli's Journey to the Moon by Gerdt Bernhard Von Bassewitz
Book DescriptionThis classic German children's tale of fantasy and adventure tells the story of how Peter and Anneli help Mr Zoomzeman, a June Bug, bring his leg back from the Moon. Long ago, a thief -- stealing wood in the forest -- had accidentally cut off Mr Zoomzeman's great-great grandfather's leg and was banished to the Moon. Unfortunately, he took the leg with him and, since then, the family of the Zoomzemans have all had only five legs. Only 'two good children' can get the leg back, so Mr. Zoomzeman, in search of goodness, finds Peter and Anneli. The three set off together on an astonishing journey filled with marvellous encounters, fantastic beings, and exciting events. Finally, reaching the Moon, they must challenge the ferocious Moon Man and, with the help of the Nature Forces, they restore the missing leg to Mr Zoomzeman.
