Summary from Macmillan
Take a trip into space with Zoe and Beans!

Zoe is hanging her pants out to dry one day, when . . . whoosh! A big gust of wind blows her and Beans up, up, up into space – along with the washing line full of pants! When they finally land on the moon, there’s a lot of exciting exploring to do. But how on earth are they going to get home again?

Nayuleska's thoughts

Zoe and Beans love each other ever so much. The strength of their friendship is shown not only in the illustrations but seems to shine out from the words. Zoe takes anything extraordinary in her stride - even when she needs to find a way home she's intelligent & quickly finds a way that will make readers laugh. One star of the book who hardly features is the bird on top of the washing line pole, whose expressions has me giggling away in this 10/10 read.

Suggested read
Read another of Zoe's adventures in Zoe and Beans: The Magic Hoop.
