Have you ever wondered where bedtime dreams come from? Well, 'Loon on the Moon' takes you on an amazing journey around the planets to find out. The front cover shows The Loon standing on the Moon. The sky is dark and full of twinkling stars. The Loon is very strange looking, with a round blue furry body, long ears and very large, flat feet. However, his face is friendly and smiling. He's holding a big, green book and above him, floating up into the sky is a stream of stars and lots of other alien creatures who you'll meet later.

Turn over the cover.
On the right is your first 'feely' picture of the Loon. He's zooming across the top of the page in his spaceship.
