Expanded for the 50th Anniversary of the First Moon Landing

Here for a new generation of readers and explorers are the steady astronauts, outfitting themselves in gloves and helmets, strapping and clicking themselves into sideways seats. Experience their great machines in all their detail and monumentality. This is a story of adventure and discovery - a story of leaving and returning during one, hot summer 50 years ago, and a story of home, seen whole, from far away. A must-have for every non-fiction picture book section.

Includes 4 new spreads with brand-new art and more in-depth information on the historic moon landing.
