It’s 1967 and the space race is on... Alfie White is crazy about space – and his dad is training to be the first man on the moon. At least that’s what Alfie tells his schoolmates. In fact, his dad has disappeared without trace – as if swallowed up by a black hole…
Together with his best friend Meg, Alfie sets out on a daring mission to find his dad. But where on earth – or in space – is he?
A cosmic tale of adventure and discovery in the latest production from Tall Stories, the company that brought you The Snail and the Whale.
