His mom agreed and he left to the planet Mars when he got there he was so happy that he found a space buddy and had lunch. He went back home and was the happiest boy.

  4. Tom won a trip to the moon. It's was just a day's trip so he took nothing but his lunch. He thought he wouldn't do anything but stare at the earth from the moon. And walk around its craters.
    What a surprise when he saw a little wobbly alien called Woobiliblu.
    Woobiliblu seemed to be alone on the moon. So he was happy to see Tom. But the alien and Tom couldn't speak because Woobiliblu didn't know English. That didn't matter. The new friends shared Tom's lunch, and even giggled at the floating apple.
