Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Footprints on the Moon by Alexandra Siy uses crisp, clear photographs and archival drawings to trace man's early fascination with the celestial sphere (including Stonehenge and Galileo), through to Buzz Aldrin's titular first steps and speculation about other destinations, such as Mars. ( Feb.)
Copyright 2001 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From School Library Journal

Gr 3-6-This outstanding look at our venture to the Moon combines a generous array of full-color photos with lively, if concise, descriptions of the Apollo Program, its predecessors, and the early history of rocketry. A look at the Moon's face in different phases gives way to portraits of Galileo and Robert Goddard's homemade-looking rocket, followed by shots of astronauts posing in and out of their massive spacesuits. Artists' conceptions of futuristic lunar colonies, a composite look at the other planets on our upcoming itinerary, and, finally, a parting view of a dusty, desolate moonscape round out the presentation. Siy binds the illustrations together with summary accounts of several of those long-ago Apollo missions, adding salient details and humorous comments made by the astronauts. Readers with an interest in these dramatic events will welcome the lists of books and Web sites at the end. A wildly exaggerated claim for the magnifying power of Galileo's telescope aside, this title ably captures both the magnitude of the technological achievement, and, even more strongly than Mary Ann Fraser's One Giant Leap (Holt, 1995), that heady feeling of going where none had gone before.-John Peters, New York Public Library

More About the Author

I live in Boulder, CO where I have just finished my newest title, BUG SHOTS: The Good, the Bad, and the Bugly, due out from Holiday House in 2011. I have also lived in New York and before that Alaska (where I was attacked by mosquitoes-probably revenge for my book MOSQUITO BITE). Alaska is far away, but Mars is even farther. Join me for a road trip across the Red Planet in my award-wining book CARS ON MARS. Visit me at www.alexandrasiy.com

This is a great book that gives you a real feeling of the excitement of the space race and how exciting it was to land on the moon. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this book.

I always associated Vivaldi with the famous Four Seasons. Now I know he is much, much more! Marvelous music!
