Milo the cat and his friend Mouse are getting ready and counting down to their launch into space. Inside the rocket, Milo puts on his space helmet (10!), then mouse presses buttons and turns on the power (9!), Milo buckles his seat belt (8!), and on until 1! when with a zoom and a roar they BLAST OFF! The following spread details their 10-part trip itinerary which ends with a moon landing.
