Bringing you up to date with what's happening in the children's books world
Written by Hannah Pang
These 176 beautifully presented pages contain everything you could possibly want to know about our planet's only natural satellite. Fifty years on from Neil Armstrong's walk on the moon, this book looks at the astronomical facts and figures, the details of the Apollo missions, the effects of gravity and even investigates the possibility of humans living on the moon. But it is not all science and technology here. We have a whole host of stories, myths and poems, with references to films, plays and songs, illustrating that the moon has been inspiring human imagination all over the world since the dawn of time.
The multidisciplinary content means that this book will appeal to a wide range of readers. Although there is a useful glossary of terms, and a separate glossary of people, there is no general index. However, the contents list is very detailed, so the book is easy to navigate. It is also a great book for dipping into.
The wonderful illustrations on every page delight the eye and enhance the text. (10+)
