Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-8 An introduction for upper elementary/middle school age students in picture book format. The emphasis of the book is on our sun, its nine planets and their satellites. The authors also discuss asteroids, comets, meteoroids and other stars. The text is accurate, incorporating the latest data from the Voyager flights of the early 1980s. The most valuable feature of the book is its illustrations. They are large and in color, with the exception of two diagrams. Often captions explain how the photograph was taken (telescope, satellite or rocket probe such as Viking or Voyager) and tell whether color or detail has been added by computer. Drawings and paintings are also identified as such, or readers are told that a scene ``might look like'' this. Therefore readers will know what features astronomers have actually ``seen'' and which are educated guesses. Many of these illustrations have appeared in other books and periodicals but not in so large a format. Similar to The Solar System (Bookwright Pr, 1984) by David Lambert, but worth owning for the spectacular illustrations. Margaret M. Hagel, formerly at Ryan Upper School Library, Norfolk, Va.
