“A fresh, expanded edition of Floca’s top-drawer tribute to the first moon landing... a soaring commemoration… This is the rare revised edition that adds enough new material to demand purchase.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

 

  “For 10 years, this Sibert Honor Book has wowed its audience....

here's an engaging, enlightening, and timely new edition

of this visually stunning book." —Booklist (starred review)

 

"The newly revised MOONSHOT: THE FLIGHT OF APOLLO 11 is even more glorious than the original, and also more inclusive.... Floca’s artwork remains an extraordinary delight for a reader of any age... his expansive, heart-stopping images convey the unfathomable beauty of both the bright, dusty moon and the blue jewel of Earth." —The New York Times Book Review

 

"Let the beautiful, poetic pictures and words on these pages take you along with Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins to a place where no humans had ever gone. Share the magnificent adventure that was Apollo 11. This book is a treasure."

—Andrew Chaikin, author of A Man on the Moon
