    3.5 stars Students will enjoy this book because it gives interesting facts about topics that aren't generally taught in school or if they are taught, it is not with detail. Topics such as the Mariana Trench, weather fronts and the angler fish will intrigue young scientists. However, when I think of geography, I think more of topography as in what is on the surface of the earth and what is below it; I generally don’t include astronomy when thinking of the earth’s geography. The target audience probably won’t be concerned about this, though.
    Another proofread or perhaps another edit would’ve helped out. The second topic, “Naming Pluto,” and the eighth, “Dwarf Planets,” both mention Pluto was degraded from planet to dwarf planet in 2006 but there is no mention of what the requirements are to be a planet (which Pluto doesn’t meet). Perhaps I’m being overly picky but the sentence “Studies of such Martian rocks have revealed that Mars, was once a wet planet” in the third topic seemed to jump out at me. The comma is in that sentence why? Again, probably not going to be noticed by the target audience.
    Despite a couple more detractors like mentioned above, I will purchase this for my school library as my students will find it interesting and humorous.
