About the Author:

Marianne J. Dyson

From Booklist:

Gr. 5-8. Dyson, who worked at NASA as a mission controller, makes a solid case for moon exploration and helps readers imagine what it will be like. Recounting the experiences of astronauts who visited the moon, she presents some of the challenges of building a lunar outpost and suggests how to meet them. Detailed captions accompany the colorful illustrations, which include impressive photographs, maps, paintings and digital pictures. Each chapter ends with a suggested activity, such as making an edible moon rock or building a model of a lunar explorer. A glossary and a source bibliography are appended, as well as lists of moon facts, astronauts who visited or orbited the moon, and recommended books and Web sites. Clear writing, vivid images, interesting details, and quotes from astronauts and scientists make this a lively, fact-filled introduction. Carolyn Phelan
