“Early one morning

—eh–hem, well, umm…

by that, I mean between eleven and noon,

Malachy Boogie and Mad Baboon

hatched a plan that they’d go to the Moon

and set off looping for a rocket but only found a spoon

and a packet of crayons and a yellow balloon.

“No. No,” said Malachy, “this won’t do.

There’s not enough lift in this balloon for two,

Besides which think of the details, Baboon:

Where shall we eat? And where shall we sleep?

There’s really nowhere to sit…

and how exactly do you see the crayons and spoon as a fit?”


The contents of this humble tome relate that most curious tale of how Malachy discovers that the Mad Baboon had, in fact, found all of the items that they would ever require to get to the Moon in a hot air balloon. Our brave heroes soon afterward set forth on their lunar-dash (with not a little Panache) in the company of their very dearest friends: Daisy cat, the old blind Mouse, the curious but helpful Grouse, a wary old Owl and a Guinea Fowl. Along the way, they meet an interesting cast of characters, including the very venerable Man in the Moon himself but ultimately find themselves Nad-bound for fashion reasons. A most curious, mysterious and unexpected outcome I’m sure you’ll agree—an in-depth understanding of which may only be achieved when you, dear reader, have delved into these pages for yourself…

Franklin Eff is a father to three girls and one boy that took up writing children's stories to inspire his own children with the joy of the books. He has succeeded in his endeavor and now hopes to similarly inspire others also.
