This magical story is intertwined with that of one of the most extraordinary feats accomplished by man: the moon landing.

The protagonists are five children who the Moon drags with her on a fantastic journey to discover the universe and its mysteries. Our explorers will find themselves projected into the deepest space, where they will experience incredible adventures astride the satellite. In the meantime, on Earth we are mobilizing to look for the little cosmonauts and NASA organizes a mission to recover them: and Apollo 11 enters the scene, with the three brave astronauts who manage to trace the position of the Moon and touch its surface on July 20, 1969, recapturing the satellite and bringing the adventurous crew home. In the final part, a rich illustrated section provides a very useful insight into the Space Race and the mission of the real Apollo 11, which explains to children how man was able to take such an important step. A QR Code allows you to access the video of the moon landing.
