Moon Landing

author: Richard Platt
illustrator: David Hawcock

Trace the history of people's fascination with the moon and the scientific developments that led to a ground-breaking mission in an out-of-this-world novelty book marking the first moon landing. Acclaimed author Richard Platt focuses on humankind's dreams of traveling to the moon, the race to conquer space, the technology needed to reach the moon and sustain the astronauts in space, and the moon landing itself. Re-creating the excitement of the expedition are extraordinary pop-ups depicting a rocket, the lunar module, a spaceship, and a spectacular spherical moon, while booklets and flaps offer readers a wealth of intriguing facts.

* Features official NASA photographs, two mini-books, and fun informational flaps
