The Story of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing

That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.’
Com­man­der Neil Arm­strong, the first man to set foot on the Moon, 21 July 1969.

Writ­ten for chil­dren, but with par­ents very much in mind, this book tells the Apol­lo 11 sto­ry through the medi­um of artist Adri­an Buckley’s atmos­pher­ic imagery. It is a sto­ry of three extra­or­di­nary men and their incred­i­ble achieve­ment: Mis­sion Com­man­der Neil Arm­strong, Lunar Mod­ule Pilot Edwin Buzz’ Aldrin and Com­mand Mod­ule Pilot Michael Collins. On 21 July 1969, when Neil Arm­strong opened the hatch in the Lunar Mod­ule and descend­ed the lad­der to set foot on the sur­face of the Moon, he became in an instant the great­est trav­eller in human his­to­ry. Full of peri­od detail and fas­ci­nat­ing insights, this is a book to be explored and enjoyed. 

Adri­an Buck­ley is a renowned graph­ic artist, whose pre­vi­ous book for chil­dren, An Igloo on the Moon: Explor­ing Archi­tec­ture, won wide crit­i­cal acclaim. 

David Jenk­ins is an author who ranges across dis­ci­plines. This is his sec­ond book for chil­dren. His first, An Igloo on the Moon: Explor­ing Archi­tec­ture, won the DAM Archi­tec­tur­al Book Award 2015.
