Product Description


A whimsical view of life on other planets by the late Gertrude Moore, mother of famous astronomer Patrick Moore, who provides the foreword. Her drawings and descriptions are humorous, yet informed. She paints a picture of a universe inhabited by exotic beings, often with amorous intentions. The paintings were made over an extended period, between 1900 and 1974.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mrs Moore In Space 17 July 2004
By Glcave
This is a delightful book for both old and young alike. The author uses her superb paintings to tell the story of the inhabitants of other planets in our solar system and beyond. Gertrude Moore (mother of Sir Patrick Moore) shows her skills both as a superb artist and as an imaginative story teller.
This book will delight children of all ages!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar 9 Dec 2012
My mum and dad bought me a copy of this in hardback when I was a young child in the 1970s, and I still have it. Eccentric, charming and delightful, it always made my imagination run wild every time I read it. Even now, whenever I see it on the shelf, I'm tempted to bring it out and read it all over again.

I'm writing this on the day Patrick Moore - "Mrs Moore"'s son - died, and it feels like part of the vision and fancy which inspired him to become such an eminent astronomer can still be found on the pages of this little book. Beautifully illustrated, and packed with whimsy, this is a treat for children and adults alike.

Read it and be moonstruck. I still am.
