If only Moon Man knew just how much children loved him! But he's not even remotely aware, he's just sitting on the moon, bored stiff . . .
One night, a shooting star appears, whizzing through outer space towards the moon. Moon Man seizes his chance, grabs the speeding comet by the tail and hitches a ride to earth! This 'attack from outer space' sets the alarm bells ringing in the Presidential Headquarters. The President himself is absolutely furious. He has only just conquered the last speck of earth, defeated all his enemies . . . And now, of all times, his dominion is being attacked by aliens from another planet! While escaping the President and his soldiers, Moon Man sets off on a long journey and marvels at the many wonders the earth has to offer – and he realizes how much children love and need him.
