There was a link on the Bad Astronomy site to another site debunking the Moon Hoax. The web master mentioned "The Monkey in the Rocket" was his favorite childhood book. He even had a picture of the book.
I forgot to book mark the site, does anyone remember it?
BTW "Monkey" is out of print, I never should have sold it at a garage sale because it was over $20.00 from an out of print service but my 5 y/o loves it.

Hi Rob !

I am pretty certain that the site in question is Jim McDade´s Moonshot:



"My mother gave me a children's book about the early "chimpanzee astronauts" titled, "Monkey in the Rocket" (Jean Bethel) when I was in the first or second grade.

That book has been lost for more than three decades, but I still remember the fascination and wonder that it gave me while sitting in the family car with my mother while waiting for dad to get off work. That was the first "space book" I ever owned."


If you want to buy a copy, then EBAY has three copies up for grabs. Just follow the link below:
