This clever book tells about the history of travel and ship building from340 BC Greece to the Apollo II moon landing. With every turn of the page, readers can marvel at the spirit of adventure and courage taken by fourteen explorers. The book is well-written and paints incredible pictures of their travels. To accompany Stewart Ross’s stories, artist Stephen Biesty has created wonderful fold- out illustrations of ships, planes, and rockets with detailed cut-away diagrams. Absolutely one of the cleverest books we have!
