    Overall, this was a good book that told not only the story of Laika, the first Soviet space dog in space, but the story of all animals that were used for space exploration. Kurt Caswell did a good job of leaving his own biases of space exploration, using animals as testing for space exploration, and and the effect of the Cold War on the space /5. Straight from the stop-motion adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s spooky, beloved book, this detailed replica brings Coraline’s doll to vivid life. Over 9” tall, it faithfully reproduces the doll from the LAIKA film, from its yarn hair and button eyes to the removable yellow raincoat. Hidden wire armatures allow you to pose he.

Description: Laika is a finalist in the Best Book Awards for Literary Fiction and the Next Generation Indie Book Awards for Young New Adult and Second Novel. You feel watched. It's nothing new, but the feeling is amplified when the streets are busy. That hum in your head is now a buzz. Laika .

    Abadzis's tear-inducing and solidly researched graphic novel treatment of Laika's surpassingly tragic story is a standout, not just for its sympathetic point of view but for its refusal to Disnify. Laika was a small (13 pounds [6 kg]), even-tempered, mixed-breed dog about two years of age. She was one of a number of stray dogs that were taken into the Soviet spaceflight program after being rescued from the streets. Only female dogs were used because they were considered to be anatomically better suited than males for close confinement.
