Summary

"The students created this book at the Queensland Children's Hospital School in the week the world celebrated the 50th anniversary of man landing on the moon. With the guidance of writer Emma Mactaggart, this was enthusiastically achieved in four fun-filled days! This included the illustrations, which were mostly created by an 11 year old student, supported by Brittany Smit. The students openly discussed the challenges they discovered whilst being a patient or a relative of someone in hospital. The students were mostly a long way from home, and by taking the story to space, it was the best way they could describe the distances they felt from their 'real' lives. This is their story."--Back cover.
