The full story

The Way Back Home tells the tale of a boy who finds an aeroplane in his cupboard. In he jumps and away he flies, high into the sky, until he runs out of petrol (as you do) and crashes into the moon (as you do!). As he starts to get cold and lonely, a friendly Martian comes to his help and together they come up with a cunning plan.
