Overview

From John F. Kennedy's speech to sending up fruit flies and finally landing on the moon, this beautifully illustrated, fact-filled read is told as a children's story designed to engage, educate, and entertain the reader. This book is a very patriotic and gentle approach to introducing the young reader to the amazing engineering achievements set by America and how the Americans went on to win the great moon race by being the first to walk on the moon. Historically accurate, this is a must have for all budding astronauts.

Reviews

"Faye Beerling and Gareth Bowler's books are fantastic for making education inspiring and fun for young ones! This is no exception, as they turn their attention to one of mankind's greatest stories: the Space Race. With all the protagonists - from Albert the monkey to Neil and Buzz - earning a mention, there are laughs and gasps all the way!"  —Paul Hayton, Bookshop Manager, Waterstones
