This quirky and delightful picture book tells the incredible true story of Belka and Strelka, the Soviet space dogs!

In 1960, two stray dogs were plucked from the streets of Moscow to become space pioneers. Belka and Strelka are put through their paces on the ground, as they practise rocket simulations and wearing spacesuits before being launched into outer space as their first ever living creatures to successfully orbit the Earth.

Miraculously, they survive the mission and upon their return they embark on a tour of the USSR. As for their legacy, less than a year after their safe return, the Soviet space programme felt confident enough to send the first human into space.
