Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-This spiral-bound browser's delight is printed on stiff-coated stock and arranged in tabbed sections. The book opens with an issue of "UFOs: The Magazine with All the Answers," presents readers with an entrance exam for Space Cadet School, summarizes our efforts to send and receive extraterrestrial communications, and closes with a casting director's portfolio of movie aliens from Ming the Merciless (Flash Gordon) to the giant Bugs of 1997's Starship Troopers. Tucked around the sheaves of small color photos, cartoons, and detailed paintings, the well-leaded text adds more than a veneer of information. The authors (skeptically) recount several UFO sightings, explain why life elsewhere in our solar system is unlikely but may exist around other stars, and describe the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) in some detail. Though it won't survive a great deal of handling, this inviting mix of hype and hypotheses will draw readers like a magnet.-John Peters, New York Public Library Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
