    In this graphic novel version of the popular WHO HQ series, readers learn about the formative years of astronaut Neil Armstrong, and all the characteristics that made him the ideal candidate to be the first human to walk on the moon. The narrative describes the young boy's curiosity and the many mistakes he made while growing up, leaving readers to conclude for themselves that sometimes learning how to solve problems rather than just finding the right answer the first time has its own value. The In this graphic novel version of the popular WHO HQ series, readers learn about the formative years of astronaut Neil Armstrong, and all the characteristics that made him the ideal candidate to be the first human to walk on the moon. The narrative describes the young boy's curiosity and the many mistakes he made while growing up, leaving readers to conclude for themselves that sometimes learning how to solve problems rather than just finding the right answer the first time has its own value. There are full-page side notes about his fellow astronauts aboard the Apollo 11, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, and details about the crew's spacesuits that anyone interested in space travel will find interesting. While not every youngster will dream of going to the moon or becoming an astronaut, most of them will find reassurance from Armstrong's journey. Typically, biographies of this sort don't contain much information about the subject's flaws, which makes this one unique. In some ways, Armstrong might seem larger than life, but in other respects, he was very much a human with flaws and one who took risks and made mistakes but also succeeded.

    Fans of the original Who Is/Was? series will be excited by the new graphic novel books. Jumping back and forth from childhood/adolescent years to Apollo 11, the story keeps you on the edge of your seat (even though older readers already know how it ends). Short, one page biographies of other astronauts onboard are sprinkled throughout the text, expanding upon the dialogue of the speakers. This is a great text to get graphic novel loyalists to explore biographies.

    From fearlessly jumping out of trees to stepping off the lunar module, Neil left his footprints on the moon. Read about his exciting journey to the moon.
