A young baboon is curious as to how he could possible reach the moon, and in his effort to get to the moon the baboon attempts many different moon-traveling methods without success.
On his way he meets doubting onlookers including two snoring vultures, a sleeping elephant and a highly doubtful flight attendant.
JC Phillips’s illustrations are colorful and eye catching to the excitement of the young readers, and my toddler was very impressed with the moon itself. The baboon comes to live through the distinctive facial expressions, and the illustrations are quite humorous.
As a mother it is always great to find a funny children’s book that can amuse both me and all three of my boys, and that is just what The Baboon Who Went To The Moon did. It is also an easy-to-read book that my eight-year-old can read to his younger brothers without any problems, which is a great added bonus.,
