"What made this historic moon landing amazing was not the technology and the bravery and the drama. What made it amazing was the fact that these three brave men had left this world and gone to another, something that had been the stuff of dreams for thousands of years." -- Mark Haddon "Provided by the Author"

Yes, Mark Haddon, as you say on Page 24, "That little boy was me". And it was me, also. And probably quite a few of this book's buyers were also that enthralled little boy (or girl).
[Christian Birmingham, your illustrations do a marvelous job of evoking that moment of time.]
It was good to be that child. It would have been good to be one of those astronauts, or one of the thousands who ought to have followed them by now.
[Or to be the little boy in the little spacesuit, capering on the Moon with Neil and Buzz, leaving little bootprints.]
But it is also good to be who I am right now, and to read this book to my own five-year-old.
[To watch him dance his toy horse across one of Birmingham's illustrations, speculating on what people would make of hoofprints on the Moon.]
Slowly, with pauses. So my voice doesn't catch . . . .
Reminds all of us of our childhood dreams
