Jimmy Zangwow’s Out of this World Moon Pie Adventure by Tony DiTerlizzi
When reading aloud you need a story that captures their imagination with awesome words. Zip Pip Kaboodle! This is the cheer that the aliens on Mars give Jimmy when he saves them from the Grimble Grinder. What an adventure! Jimmy’s mom denies him a moon pie because it is too close to dinner time. So, Jimmy leaves and goes to the moon in a contraption he has created himself in search of those coveted Moon Pies. Along the way he comes face to face with the Grimble Grinder and he must find a way back home in time for dinner too. The pictures in this book are fabulous and if the words somehow fail to hold their interest then the pictures will keep them captivated. Take the kids on an adventure with this book.
