Synopsis:
Earth's First Astronaut. Laika was the abandoned puppy who grew up to become Earth's first space traveler. This is her story. Nick Abadzis masterfully blends fact and fiction as he recounts Laika's journey--from the streets of Moscow to the Soviet space program, and then to her fateful final journey on Sputnik 2. Moving words and powerful pictures relate the history of this momentous event and the political landscape surrounding it, through the life of this small, curly-tailed dog. Poignant and authentic, Laika's story speaks straight to the heart.
