A fantasy book for little children to embark on a discovery of space. It is an imaginative journey of a little boy who wants to take a trip to the Moon.  His grandparents, mother and his pet, Ramu join him in his venture.  The family uses different pieces of furniture from the house to create a ladder on top of a hill to take them to the Moon.

Kids will enjoy this fun-filled, whacky expedition to the moon.  Maybe, someday, it could arouse their curiosity to make journeys to different planets and their moons. The mode of journey to different planets would of course, depend on the imagination of each reader!

The illustrations by Harshvardhan Kadam enlivens the book and creates many interesting images for a child to muse over. A good layout, with minimal text on each page, add to the visual appeal of the book.
