Editorial Reviews


'A touching recollection, evocatively illustrated, of a child's-eye view of the moon and the excitement and wonder he felt when the first moon landing took place.' Guardian 'It is back to July 16 1969 for Mark Haddon's The Sea of Tranquility. Apollo II's giant leap for mankind is re-lived through the wondering imagination of a small boy and Christian Birmingham's dream-like celestial pastels. 'Financial Times 'The deliciously enchanting text is complemented by Christian Birmingham's exquisite pastel illustrations, which capture the awe and mystery that the moon had for this small boy.' Books for Keeps The extraordinary dream quality of the illustrations ... give this book a real feel of awe and wonder. A terrific book...' Junior Education --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
Beautiful artwork - about a man who reflects back to when he was a young boys with fantasies of becoming an astronaut & going to the moon. He has the suppot of his parents, helping him make scrapbooks & trips to the library. He borrows dad's binoculars & gazes at the moon for hours.

Reminds all of us of our childhood dreams

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The story is great; the author narrates his recollection (as a kid) of Apollo 11. The picture on the cover depicts the author (as a child) in a dream, walking on the moon with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. I purchased this book for my two little boys (5 and 3.) They love it! Being little kids themselves, they really like the picture of the "little kid" astronaut walking with the "grown-up" astronauts.
