Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara L. Talcroft
Originally published in Australia, this "New Solar System" series delivers the latest astronomical news through 2008, illustrations on every page, and lots of statistics. In five or six brief chapters, young scientists will learn about the planets and the space exploration that provided the information. An attractive extra is a short explanation and illustration of Greek or Roman deities associated with the planets; in Jupiter, the king of gods is shown hurling his thunderbolts. Budding astronomers will discover that this huge planet could always be seen from Earth, though Galileo identified its four largest moons (using a telescope) only in 1610. Another chapter explores Jupiter's fast rotation and gassy atmosphere, as well as its stormy bands of clouds and strong magnetic field. "Moons and Rings" describes in detail the four principal moons with their Greek names, Io, Europa, Ganymede, and distant Callisto (whose orbiting distance, erroneously stated, should be 1,170,000 miles); readers may not know that Jupiter has more than 63 moons and faint rings made of rock dust. For those intrigued by space exploration, the author explains that Voyager probes studied the Great Red Spot, discovered Jupiter's rings and three small inner moons, while Galileo's orbiter beamed information until 2003. Clear, no-nonsense text moves along briskly, while illustrations in saturated colors on dark backgrounds are eye-catching. Further help includes a "Jupiter Fact Summary," a glossary, and a list of websites. Reviewer: Barbara L. Talcroft
