Max goes to Mars
Big kid science book / 2015
Les premières lignes / the first lines:
This is the story of how Max the Dog helped humanity take the next giant leap – far beyond the Moon, to the wondrous planet Mars.
It had been only a few years since Max and his friend Toru helped start the Moon colony. Thousands of people had already visited the Moon, but no one had yet traveled beyond.
Tori and Max stayed busy at home on Earth. Tori was in school, and Max would play all day.
They loved to go for evening walks, especially when the sky was clear and dark. Tori could always spot the planets among the stars. Sometimes, when Mars was bright, she imagined that it was calling out to them, inviting a girl and her dog to visit.
