What weabout it
Cats in space! What’s not to love? This Atomic Age story follows an adventurous kitty who explores our solar system.


Originally published in 1952, this storybook is a throwback to a time when the country’s popular imagination was focused on the moon.

Enter Flyball, a curious grey kitten who stows away on an airplane, befriends the captain, helps run a desert space station and eventually explores our fascinating solar system.

The illustrations have major vintage appeal—think mid-century science fiction, with clean lines and elegant page layouts—but whether or not you’re a design geek, the visual lure of a cat in a space suit is undeniable.
