Dogs in Space
Meet Belka and Strelka, two stray dogs from Moscow who, in 1960, became the first animals to orbit Earth and return home safely in Vix Southgate’s informative, engaging picture book Dogs in Space. Illustrated by Iris Deppe, the book which also includes additional information about the space race and other animals in orbit, is an ideal tie-in to the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.
