I have already declared my love for the work of Miroslav Sasek and this is just another book to re-affirm that love.

Sasek is best known for his ‘This is’…(London, Paris, New York etc) picture books and ‘This Way to the Moon’ is in a similar style to previous works and has the same trademark illustrations. The illustrations are light-hearted and use bold colours giving the images clean outlines whilst maintaining a sense of humour. I love Sasek’s illustrations and love his consistency. The prose is easy to follow and great to be read aloud. This book might be nice for introducing children to the moon/space at a younger age.

I love this series of picture books by Miroslav Sasek. Customers at work are always looking for books that will help their children on their first travels and I think these are a good starting point.

(The Usborne ‘We’re going on a plane/to the dentist/to the vet/to a funeral’ etc books are also invaluable to a child’s first time experiences).

On doing a little research there are loads of travel related picture books. My favourite would have to be ‘This is New York’ because I visited the big apple when I was only 16 and felt completely overwhelmed so can only imagine what it’s like  for a small child. And for those not travelling; this is a great picture book to get the imagination going picturing fantastic adventures around New York.
