You Wouldn't Want To Be On Apollo XIII! Paperback / softback
by Ian Graham
Illustrated by David Antram
Part of the You Wouldn't Want To Be series
This engaging information book tells the story of the American astronauts who set out on the voyage of a lifetime in 1970 to land on the moon.
After months of practise, they blasted off from Earth to the cheers of bystanders, but things took a turn for the worse and they had to face up to the perils of space travel.
The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding their understanding of what life would have been like aboard Apollo XIII.
Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
