‘NASA photographs and information gathered by the Apollo space missions are incorporated here along with a description of how the moon’s composition, terrain, and atmosphere differ from the Earth’s. With simple lines and few colors, Kelley’s illustrations capture these differences, identify the Apollo landing sites, and depict the operation of a future moon colony.’ —BL.

Grade 1-3-This second update of a 1963 title (Crowell; o.p.) is clearly written and useful. Compared to the 1986 edition (HarperCollins), it has just one textual change: the mention of the discovery of potentially potable water beneath the surface of the moon. Visual differences include a cleaner font, a brighter cover, and watercolor-and-photographic illustrations. Three interesting activities are appended, including making a moon crater with flour, cocoa powder, and a marble.
