"Andy Astronaut" is a Golden Busy People Book. Written by Graig Pineo, it is copyrighted 1968 by Golden Press. This tall, illustrated kids book shows what astronauts do to get ready to go into space and what they do once they get there. From learning to fly rockets and what he eats in space to talking to ground control and landing in the ocean with a ship ready to pick him up; this adorable kids book has wonderful full color illustrations on every page. Written during the age of the Apollo space missions, this is a rare childrens book that is hard to find especially in this condition.
This large childrens book measures approximately 16 1/2 inches tall by 6 3/4 inches wide. The hardcover book has illustrated board covers and is in good vintage condition. A child named Robby wrote his name on the inside back cover and made a little doodle on the last page. Otherwise, the pages are clean and the binding is tight. There is a clear cellophane coating on the cover that has some mild lifting on the corners and mild bumping on the cover's corners (see photos). The back cover has some minor scuffing.
A great piece of childrens literature perfect to read aloud at bedtime or give as a gift to any little astronaut want-to-be.
