VG, DJ has a tear in the upper left and edge wear, book itself is in great condition. Light blue cloth boards with red and black DJ, 69pp, numerous BW and tricolor illustrations. One of the most adorable 50s books I've seen so far. From the jacket--"Space travel may seem fantastic to most grownups, but to boys and girls it is becoming everyday adventure, and quite real. As a matter of fact, it IS real. Space travel is a new frontier that some of them will explore themselves. [This book] helps them to sort out the real facts from the ones that never can happen. They'll find out why we haven't conquered space yet, how we will do it, where they may go and where they never can. They'll find out why rockets will be used instead of airplanes and how a rocket works."
