Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers
Book DescriptionAn exciting intergalactic adventure from shining star Oliver Jeffers, creator of Lost and Found. One day a boy finds an aeroplane in his cupboard. Up, up, up and away he flies, high into the sky. Whizzing past clouds, stars and planets until suddenly, he runs out of petrol! Miles from earth, the boy crashes into the moon and waits. Just as he is beginning to get cold and lonely, a friendly martian appears from the darkness, also with a broken aircraft. Together they come up with a super plan to float the boy back down to earth to collect his toolbox. Can the boy find his way back home safely and will he ever make it back up to the moon to rescue his friend?

Bruno doesn't like his new house. He had to leave all his friends behind in Berlin, and there are no children to play with here - until Bruno meets Shmuel, a boy who lives on the other side of the wire fence near Bruno's house, and who wears a strange uniform of striped pyjamas.
US Kirkus Review » A boy (who bears a striking resemblance to the boy in Lost and Found, 2005 and How to Catch a Star, 2004) finds an airplane in his closet. Though he doesn't remember putting it there, he decides he should take it out for a flight. After flying higher and higher, he finds himself stranded on the moon with a dying flashlight. Following scary sounds, he meets a friendly Martian in a similar predicament. They make a list of what they need in order to fix both crafts, and the boy parachutes back to Earth. He's so tired, he initially forgets his mission. Then he remembers, gathers their equipment and hollers for the Martian to lower a rope. The two fix each other's machines and say their goodbyes. A peek at the last page shows that the friendship is far from over. Jeffers's latest tale of loneliness cured by friendship is as charming as his previous efforts. The space theme as well as the simple watercolor-and-pencil illustrations will please every young, imaginative adventurer. (Picture book. 3-6) (Kirkus Reviews)
