PreS-Gr 1–Schwarz has brought back characters Anna and Crocodile, first introduced in How to Find Gold, as they plan to go to the moon. This almost impossible mission will require special skills. They must know math, but luckily Anna can count backwards from five. They must have patience, and luckily Crocodile is very patient. They need sandwiches and a rocket, and then they are off. Watercolor illustrations showcase brown-skinned Anna, bright green Crocodile, and a beautiful patchwork-colored rocket ship. Most text is featured on a solid white background making it easy to read and follow along. Fans of the first book will be excited to follow best friends Anna and Crocodile on another intrepid adventure and those who thrill to all things outer space will enjoy this book as a stand-alone.
VERDICT The story expresses the importance of imaginative play and the colorful illustrations shine. Recommend for general purchase
