Beating thousands of others, the geeky boy they call ‘Micky Moon’ at home, is one of ten children from around the world accepted onto the ‘Children’s Moon Program’ in Florida. If he can survive the g-force of a space-shuttle launch, overcome his secret fear of water and pass the other battery of tests, he could win a place on the next mission to the moon!
A Note From the Publisher
Combines facts and figures about space, with a 'What if a child could train to be an astronaut?' Examines what happens when fantasy starts to hurtle towards reality.
Interested in space travel? Interested in how a rocket can fly to a different planet? Then this book is for you. I thoroughly enjoyed this exciting story of a boy battling to be a N.A.S.A astronaut and travel to the moon. Not only is it a fast-paced adventure, it is also a mystery populated with a host of complex and interesting characters. I would recommend it to any 9 – 12-year-old boy or girl who enjoys a thrilling story with a light sprinkling of intergalactic know-how.
