Who does know what happened?

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2014-04-24) Very Good Permalink

While the story of Laika the Astronaut Dog is generally seen as a sad one, the author in recounting the history of this dog sent by the Russians into space adds a more happy potential ending.  The illustrations are wonderful.
