The Usborne book of the Moon

For thousands of years, the Moon has been the one thing in the night sky that everyone anywhere on our planet recognises. Trace the story of the Moon around the world and through history, from ancient legends about its creation, to its first sighting through a telescope, right up until the Apollo 11 mission and the first Moon landing in 1969.

“Beautifully illustrated... Straightforward and informative, and preserves the magic of the moon.”
