In seemingly impossible situations Anthony knows he can call on his special friend, Blackboard Bear. Here his enormous, ursine chum comes to life and assists Anthony in building a spacecraft to take him to the moon. When the spaceship stands ready and waiting and he begins to have doubts about the trip, Blackboard Bear offers to make it for him. There's much for the reader to ponder over in the clever narrative - a combination of enchanting pictures and Anthony's (unanswered) words to his friend: What does the bear say to Anthony? Does anyone in fact make the lunar journey? Is the whole thing a dream? And what about those paw marks all over the bedroom floor?... A seemingly simple book which offers countless opportunities for making meanings - but they'll be different at every encounter with the story.
