Product description


Winner of the Robert F. Sibert Informational Book Award

* "This behind-the-scenes look at the first Apollo moon landing has the feel of a public television documentary in its breadth and detail."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "This beautiful and well-documented tribute will introduce a new generation to that triumphant time."
--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"This dramatic account will mesmerize even readers already familiar with the event---and also leave them awed by the level of care and dedication it took to surmount so many daunting technological challenges."
--School Library Journal

"Thimmesh gives names and voices to the army that got Neil Armstrong and company to the moon and back. The result is a spectacular and highly original addition to the literature of space exploration."
--Horn Book

"Catherine Thimmesh tells us the stories of the 400,000 people it took to make...that 'one giant leap'...Their collective devotion to an exciting goal comes across strongly."
--Chicago Tribune

* "Kids . . . probably feel they know quite a bit about the first manned moon landing. But until they've read Thimmesh's breathless behind-the-scenes account, they know zip."
--Bulletin, starred review

"An edge-of-your-seat adventure . . . lavishly illustrated . . . this exhilarating book . . . will captivate."
--Chicago Sun-Times

"Thimmesh's enthusiasm for her subject is palpable, and the sense of excitement she brings is as vital to Team Moon's success the book's very premise."
--Chris Barton, author of Shark vs. Train

An NCTE Orbis Pictus Honor Book
AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize for Excellence in Science Books
An ALA Best Book for Young Adults
