Sarsaparilla wants to go to the moon and he asks Juxtapose if he can jump to the moon because Juxtapose is a good jumper. Juxtapose tells his friend that the moon is four hundred thousand kilometers away but Sarsaparilla thinks they can do it if they join together. They start planning their trip. Though Neil Armstrong was the first person to walk on the moon, no one has jumped to the moon, and they know they will be the first ones if they do it. They go on an exciting adventure through the Troposphere, Stratosphere, Mesosphere, Ionosphere, and Exosphere. They put some moon dust in their bag and head back to earth, knowing their parents will be missing them.

Juxtapose and Sarsaparilla Jump to The Moon by Isaac Aeppli is a whimsical story in which young readers travel to the moon along with Juxtapose and Sarsaparilla and then come back to earth. The illustrations capture the adventure and magic of the story and give readers some information about the various layers of the earth's atmosphere until they reach outer space. The story makes science fascinating and exciting and it might make youngsters curious and eager to learn more about the moon, the earth's atmosphere, and space, etc. Science can be a bit boring at times for youngsters and this is a good book for tutors to use in their classrooms to get children interested in science in a fun and interactive way, and the same goes for parents.
