Description

Written and illustrated by Chris Gall, Go for the Moon! captures the fascinating detail and inspiring adventure of the moon landing. It is a captivating celebration of one of humankind's greatest technical achievements and most extraordinary feats of exploration.

The Apollo 11 astronauts have prepared carefully for their attempt to be the first men to land on the moon. The young narrator of this book has prepared carefully, too: he explains the design of the spacecraft, the flight from the earth to the moon, and the drama of touching down--while shadowing the astronaut's voyage with one of his own.

Chris Gall:

Chris Gall was eight years old when men first walked on the moon, and began building and flying model rockets at about the same time. “Some smashed into pieces when their parachutes failed,” he says, “but some left the earth with a shattering roar and flew to great heights. I like to think one of them made it to the moon.”

While continuing to build rockets, Chris went on to earn a degree in fine arts from the University of Arizona and is the author and illustrator of a dozen acclaimed books, including Dinotrux, a Publishers Weekly Best Children’s Book of the Year, The Littlest Train, and Dog Vs. Cat. Go for the Moon! is his first work of children’s nonfiction. He lives in Tucson.
