Meg, Mog and Owl return in this third witchy adventure, first published in 1973 - the first two entries in the series, Meg and Mog and Meg's Eggs, were both published in 1972 - and still in print today. When Mog decides he wants to go to the moon as his birthday treat, Meg is quick to craft a spell, creating a miniature spaceship that carries them into outer space (with Owl staying behind to supervise takeoff and landing). Exploring the delights of the lunar landscape, from meeting up with astronauts to bounding along in the low gravity, the witch and cat have a wonderful time, before heading once again for "that green thing" called Earth...

With the same simple text - no more than a sentence or two per page - and brightly colored illustrations as the previous entries in the series, Meg on the Moon is sure to appeal to younger preschool children who enjoy either witchy tales or adventures set in outer space. There is plenty of opportunity here for the adult reader to add excitement to the narrative - the many sound words; the countdown page, on which each number features in its own panel, comic-book style; the many exclamations - making it an excellent read-aloud selection. Quirky, humorous, and entertaining, this entry in the Meg and Mog series makes me want to track down the next, Meg at Sea. ( )
