Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11
by Brian Floca

This stunning retelling of the Apollo 11 mission is written "with quiet dignity and a minimum of fuss" (Booklist), leaving the drama to the eye-popping illustrations that fill the pages of his over- sized book.

Readers are taken along for the ride, and will get a glimpse of the majesty that astronauts witnessed through these dramatic illustrations.

This award-winning book "brilliantly captures the mighty scope and drama of the achievement." (School Library Journal, starred review)
