Mr Bedford has an extraordinary tale to tell. A tale of discovery and adventure, of bravery and sacrifice, and of strange creatures beyond our world.
His story begins with a chance meeting in the English countryside. Professor Cornelius Cavor is a scientist, a visionary, and a dreamer – but in Mr Bedford, he finds the practical partner who can help him realise his ambition.
The two are thrown together on an impossible journey, and together, Cavor and Bedford are destined to become… The First Men in the Moon.
