From the Publisher:
Laika was the abandoned puppy destined to become Earth's first space traveler.  This is her journey.||Nick Abadzis masterfully blends fiction and fact in the intertwined stories of three compelling lives. Along with Laika, there is Korolev, once a political prisoner, now a driven engineer at the top of the Soviet space program, and Yelena, the lab technician responsible for Laika's health and life. This intense triangle is rendered with the pitch-perfect emotionality of classics like Because of Winn Dixie, Shiloh, and Old Yeller.
 
Abadzis gives life to a pivotal moment in modern history, casting light on the hidden moments of deep humanity behind history. 
 
Laika's story will speak straight to your heart.

Praise

"The striking palette of earth tones works in concert with the compelling historically fictive prose--a luminous masterpiece filled with pathos and poignancy." 8/1/2007
