Incredibly detailed illustrations appear simple and uncluttered, allowing a complicated mission to unfold with accessible mystery and anticipation. Inside front cover drawings and explanations detail the rocket's parts, and present a visual sequence of events. Rich descriptors deepen the reading experience, complementing oversize illustrations used to convey the enormous undertaking of a first lunar landing. The perspectives — from the earth, the living room, the rocket, and the moon — make this feel like a participatory reading experience.
Publisher Summary
Brian Floca explores Apollo 11’s famed moon landing with this beautifully illustrated picture book!

Simply told, grandly shown in close-up focus and wide-angle visas, this is the flight of Apollo 11 that began on July 16, 1969. 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 fifty years ago, and a story of home, seen whole, from far away.
