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.

Review:
"The striking palette of earth tones works in concert with the compelling historically fictive prose--a luminous masterpiece filled with pathos and poignancy."

Kirkus Reviews, 8/1/2007

Review:
"[A] haunting, sweet biography of Laika, the first dog in space, who died five hours after she was launched on Sputnik II...The book walks a fine line between fancy and faithfulness to the historical facts of Laika's life, populated with exhaustively researched, fleshed-out characters who are charming, complex and frustrating."

Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing, 11/19/2007
