This Is the Way to the Moon, by M. Šašek
【阿波羅登月50周年】Green Tots 推薦繪本 This is the Way to the Moon
This is系列繪本出自捷克作家Miroslav Šašek。Miroslav Šašek當年寫作時也和Madeline的作者Ludwig Bemelmans 一樣都是經由旅行中城市漫遊，以繪畫記錄下來他所觀察到的一切人、事、物。
來自東歐的Miroslav Šašek插畫融合該城市特有的顏色，畫中的光線拿捏讓人驚嘆。以獨特視角與觀察詮釋該地迷人之處。還沒有去旅行，彷彿置身其境。This Is系列繪本中的紐約還曾創下一天銷售600本的紀錄。
M. Šašek 詳細紀錄50年代美國大眾迷戀太空發展瘋狂的程度，對太空史有興趣的讀者可以選讀這本繪本。
Like the other Sasek classics, these are facsimile editions of his original books. The brilliant, vibrant illustrations have been meticulously preserved, remaining true to his vision more than forty years later and, where applicable, facts have been updated for the twenty-first century, appearing on a "This is . . . Today" page at the back of each book. The stylish, charming illustrations, coupled with Sasek's witty, playful narrative, make these books a perfect souvenir that will delight both children and their parents, many of whom will remember them from their own childhood. In This is the Way to the Moon, first published in 1963, Sasek rockets readers to Cape Canaveral--the space capital of the world, a science-fiction-turned-fact spot on the Florida coast--with a nostalgic look at the electronic brains that put our man up into space and brought him down again. Also included are the updated statistics about the lunar landing and a mini history of NASA's space program.
