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 for everyone aged five and up.
