An easy to read, enjoyable, and funny story that has a lesson too. It was my favorite in 4th grade (along with Homer Price) and now it's one of my 9-year old's favorites too. Innocent without being sappy, and full of clever technological misperceptions about Earth by lunar inhabitant Matthew Looney and his family. As a bonus, fabulous cartoon illustrations by Gahan WIlson put this one over the top.

Just what I was looking for, thank you. Especially pleased it arrived sooner than anticipated.

What a shame these books are out of print--they are truly classics. Matthew Looney is a little moon man, and he and his people have a longstanding antagonistic relationship with Earth (thought to be terribly dangerous because of the high incidence of poisonous substances such as water). Throughout the series Matthew travels to earth, discovers all sorts of strange things and sees our world through a fresh set of eyes. If you can find these books in the library, get them for your kids.
