Penguin Pipkin is never short of questions, most of all he likes to know how high the sky is. Unfortunately, he is not able to fly and therefore an albatross takes him along. They fly higher and higher, but Pipkin can’t touch the sky nevertheless. How fortunate, that a hot-air ballon passes by which can give Pipkin a lift. Sadly, the sky is still not close enough and so Pipkin is delighted when a passing astronaut offers him a place in his space rocket.
They fly up until they reach the moon. Pipkin is amazed that he can see stars in the sky even there. But also the astronaut cannot tell him how high the sky really is. When Pipkin is home again and his mum tucks him in, he knows the answer to his question. The sky is endlessly high and so there are lots of things left to be discovered by Pipkin.
