Wonderfully weird 1961 Russian kids book about space flight




If only space exploration were that glamorous, more people would look up to astronauts as great explorers.

If only space exploration were that glamorous, the kid cosmonauts would be happier in space…

The lyrics in the second image are:

Somewhere there’s sun and summer,
And somewhere our friends await us;

  • Let’s swim faster back to the rocket! -
    Said I to the cosmonauts.



Looks to me like the crab-creature just wanted to shag.


They’re lovely.


I love the rocket.

If I were better at fiberglas work, I might try to duplicate it as a flying model rocket.


We have no names.


This is screaming at the top of it’s lungs for a LEGO Minifig recreation.


I remember having similar toy cosmonauts at the kindergarten I went to.
