The Sea Of TranquilityEducational, Gift and Keepsake Books, Junior Fiction, Picture Books, Science and Discovery
In anticipation of the first lunar landing, a little boy in London fantasises about astronauts walking in space, orbiting the earth, and flying to the moon, and one July day, his dream becomes a reality.
From Publishers Weekly
A British author recounts his boyhood fascination with the moon and with the rocketships and missions that preceded the first lunar landing. Haddon’s text lyrically transports readers to that dramatic moment in 1969 when, in living rooms around the world, people saw men roving the moon’s landscape. From the boy’s dream of “rocketing across the cold, black miles and landing on crumbly rock” to the actual event of the two American astronauts “bouncing through the dust in the Sea of Tranquillity,” the author’s measured tone weaves the aspirations of the heart with history.
Full-bleed illustrations, softly textured as if seen through the scrim of time.
