The First Man to Pee on the Moon
“They [Torill Kove and Endre Lund Eriksen] are superior!” Dagsavisen
The spaceship Apollo 11 is headed for the moon. On board are three men who all hate each other’s guts: Buzz, Michael and Neil.
Buzz is mad as hell. The first man out was supposed to be HIM. But Houston has decided to let Neil go first instead. Michael is suspiciously happy. Even though he will only be sitting in the spaceship that will orbit around the moon. Is he up to something? And Neil, who appears to be such a nice guy, keeps poring over the check list. So many things can go wrong.
21st July 1969 Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon. A little later Buzz Aldrin shuffled out of the space ship.
Many years after the first moon landing, Endre Lund Eriksen offers his own humorous version of what REALLY happened. The book is illustrated by Torill Kove, a Norwegian animator, illustrator and childrens’ book writer who won an Oscar for her animated short THE DANISH POET.
