by Matthew Brenden Wood (Author) and Samuel Carbaugh (Illustrator)

Booktalk: On July 20th, 1969, Neil Armstrong landed gently on the lunar surface and became the first person to set foot on another world. People around the world stopped what they were doing to crowd around television sets and radios to witness one of the greatest achievements in human history–a man walking on the moon. How did we get there? Why haven’t we gone back?

The 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 is NEXT SUMMER.
