This is a lovely mixture of story and science...or flight. Neil starts out as an ordinary boy, young readers will easily identify with. After all, almost every child loves the playground.

This came at the perfect time as earlier on this year we had done a whole week on Space at school to celebrate the anniversary of the moon landing.
The children in my class absolutely loved this book, the pictures are bright and colourful and so child friendly. The children loved learning some more information about Neil Armstrong and by the end of the book they were all eagerly shouting ‘Whee!’ Every time I read it in the book!...Read More

The whole story is a special one I think maybe aimed for boys. Hold on tight it’s so exciting, every event that Neil takes until he reaches the Moon.
I think the author has done a fantastic job at making the story about Neil an interesting one to help young children want to read....Read More
Since we got this book I can’t tell you how many times we’ve read it, I probably could read the book without actually picking it up. It’s such a fun and exciting book for the little ones.
All 3 children absolutely loved the story and, of course, their favourite part was the “whee’s” haha!....Read More
