There are some strange ideas floating around in Paul’s apartment building. There’s Mabel, who now calls herself Molly and whose brother hides under a paper bag. Then there’s Clarence, the poodle who thinks he can fly. . . . But the strangest idea of all is Paul’s. You see, Paul believes that the moon is not the moon but a great hole in the sky. How on earth (or not on earth) is he going to find out whether he’s a crackpot or a genius? With a few equally crackpot (or genius) helpers and a very long ladder, that’s how.

    " A sweetly innocent tale of nonsense and whimsy, The Boy Who Climbed into the Moon reminded me of why David Almond is one of my favorite children's authors. Anne Flosnik performs wonderfully as the audiobook narrator. "

    " this was weird, but an ok short read, it was "out there" overt type creative writing, far from subtle, this author wrote Skellig which was much better "

    " I loved this book. Dunbar's illustrations compliment Almond's words, and the story is quirky and whimsical without being too cutesy. Perfect to be read to children of 4 or 5 upwards, and I would say 7 or 8 reading on their own; also the kind of story parents enjoy reading to their children! "

    " I really did not like this book. It was one of those that I thought I should like, but I just couldn't. I did like the illustrations, but felt the book was just a tad too "out there". I couldn't picture any kid at my library who I would recommend this too. "
