Fun book, great illustrations, and written by/about an astronaut. What more could you want? This was a fun read, even as an adult. I was curious if it would be the sort of book that would make kids who weren't already afraid of the dark afraid of the dark, but it's definitely not. The "aliens" are fun looking and Chris' fear of the dark is treated in a fairly light-hearted manner in a way that I think would have help "scared of the dark" me as a kid, replacing fear with the excitement of possibilities. What I love most though is that it gives kids an idea of what seeing man walk on the moon for the first time felt like. I wasn't born yet when it happened, but I felt like I was transported back in time for the event.
