Mr. Fox decides he wants to take a trip to the moon so he buys a hot air balloon. He takes off, but a friend sees him and wants to join the journey. Fox tells elephant to climb aboard and they begin again. This happens over and over with more friends until the balloon basket becomes too heavy and the cords snap. The balloon floats away to the moon and all the animals float safely to the earth where they have a party and decide to try again some other time.

The illustrations are vibrant with vintage coloring. There is lots to see on each page. The whole book has a vintage feel to it.

This story is very repetitive, but I did not feel bogged down by this. Each new addition to the balloon was fun and interesting. The animals falling safely was unrealistic, but the author did a good job through illustration showing how this could be possible. Because there is so much to see on each page, children will not quickly become bored with the book since there will be something new to see each time. Advertised for ages 2-6.
