The Space Age (1962)
Next in my British series are books from "The Space Age Readers" series. #1 in the series is "The Space Age."
These are very peculiar school readers. The illustrations are stiff, the colors are odd, and the text reads like an exercise in surrealism. I have only found 2 of the 4 in the series but you may fall in love with them as much as I have.
But wait there is more!~ They use this idea of the world is round to introduce different children from around the world (all while reminding us that it is The Space Age!)
Be sure to check out my post on ""The World of Ann Martin" if you like this (coming soon)
