A curious cat and a whimsical story.

We got this out of the library after yet again seeing covers for "Space Cat" books on another jigsaw puzzle. Written at the dawn of the space age, this tells the story of "Flyball" a very independant and sure of itself cat who stows away - first on an airplane, and then on a rocket ship. Flyball is adopted by the pilot/astronaut destined to make the first moon voyage - AND Flyball get to go along.

Clearly not the MOST scientific of SF stories, this was an interesting snapshot from the 1950's before anyone (feline or human) had been in space.
