The Way Back Home Kindle Edition
When a boy discovers a single-propeller airplane in his closet, he does what any young adventurer would do: He flies it into outer space! Millions of miles from Earth, the plane begins to sputter and quake, its fuel tank on empty. The boy executes a daring landing on the moon . . . but there’s no telling what kind of slimy, slithering, tentacled, fangtoothed monsters lurk in the darkness! (Plus, it’s dark and lonely out there.) Coincidentally, engine trouble has stranded a young Martian on the other side of the moon, and he’s just as frightened and alone. Martian, Earthling—it’s all the same when you’re in need of a friend.
The message that friends are friends whether they are near or far comes through in a warm, amusing manner. -- School Library Journal --This text refers to the kindle_edition_av edition.

A definite must buy for fans of Mr Jeffers. 👍
Another little gem.
I find, on some pages, the choice of text / background colours very difficult to read in a normally-lit
room; in a dimmed 'time-for-bed' room the text on some pages (for me) is nigh on
impossible to read (so I make the story up on those pages!)
I seem have difficulty reading the black text on a dark blue background for example (and light grey
on dark grey).
Of course, I realise this might not be a problem for everyone, but I thought I'd mention it.
So ... great story and illustrations, but (for me at least)not the easiest to read at bed time.
