Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

'It's me!' says Dmitri. 'I'm back from the moon!' But alas, nobody remembers the former space hero anymore. Unknown to Dmitri, Lulu--his loyal lunar pal--has stowed away in his sack of moon rocks, and this remarkable creature soon becomes an overnight sensation. While the forgotten astronaut mopes, scientists are puzzling over Lulu's crayon drawings of a mysterious figure. Who on earth can he possibly be?

Horn Book Review

Dmitri returns from a two-and-a-half year expedition to the moon to find that no one remembers him. In his despair, he tosses his bag of moon rocks in the trash, unaware that his moon-creature friend, Lulu, is also in the bag. He is eventually reunited with his friend and restored to glory. The unsatisfying story, which presumes NASA misplaces an astronaut, is illustrated with simple watercolors. From HORN BOOK 1996, (c) Copyright 2010.
