About the book:
The book is a children's story in the "Beginners Books" series, written using a restricted
vocabulary of simple words for a readership age of six. The illustrations show a lunar mission
concept based on the Von Braun and Ley space exploration concepts of 1952 featuring wingéd
three-stage rockets ferrying the passengers to a rotating-wheel space station serving as a transfer
station to the spider-like lunar surface shuttle.
The writing is unusual in that it is written in the second-person future tense.
