Jimmy Zangwow's Out-Of-This-World Moon-Pie Adventureby Tony Diterlizzi
Synopses & Reviews
When Jimmy Zangwow's mom says no to a treat before dinner, Jimmy dreams of going to the moon to sneak a bunch of Moon-Pies. His wish comes true — and he finds himself hurdling through space in pursuit of his favorite snack!
Long before kids begged their parents for Twinkies, Ho-Hos, and Devil Dogs, they clamored for Moon Pies--America's original snacktime treat. So, when Jimmy Zangwow's mother won't let him have a Moon Pie before dinner, he does what any self-respecting kid would do. He hops into his secret project and flies off to the moon to get his own. An entertaining tale of epic proportion paired with dazzling illustrations. Full-color illustrations.

About the Author
Tony DiTerlizzi loves Moon Pies, but he loves illustrated books even more. Raised on such great artists as Arthur Rackham, Maxfield Parrish, and Ernest H. Shepard, Tony began making little books for himself when he was just a kid. Nowadays, he may look older, but he's still a kid at heart. He collects toys, draws, and continues to create books — like the one you're now holding. He also enjoys visits with the Mars Men in spring when the Martian rainy season is over. He lives in Brooklyn, New York, with Angela and their pug, Goblin, who's the real brains behind the whole "kaboodle."
