"My friends," said Huckleberry, "together we will build it, and together we will fly it to the moon."
For both the building and launching site, Huckleberry chose the topmost peak of the highest mountain he could find.
"Up there," explained the hound dog, "we will be half-way to the moon, even before we start!"
As Huckleberry took his weary friends up the mountain side, he howled this song:
What is so rare as a day in June?
What is so rare as a flight to the moon?....."
