The author laid out a realistic but fantastical twenty-four step plan to cheer up the moon. Since he is currently busy with school, soccer practice, and other activities, he’s writing the plan for us as readers to follow. Using average household items we’ll build a slingshot connecting 238,900 miles of garden hose to the moon. Then, with a little help from NASA, we’ll hop in our space suit and pedal the distance to plant sunflowers. Don’t forget to pack snacks and a shovel! We’ll be celebrated as heroes when we return and the bright flowers that were planted will certainly cheer the moon up.
