I am very entertained by this book. It uses the future tense about going to the moon, like “The United States is planning several ways of getting man to the moon and back. Whichever turns out to be the best will be the one we’ll use” (um…good plan, rocket scientist!). The last page of the book talks about how some day people “will be able to see all the cities and towns, and make out their outlines.” Google Earth, anyone?
This book is still on the shelf in a public library! They inter-library loaned it to me. Will it go back on the shelf when I send it back?
