Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Utilitarian, assignment-oriented titles, each of which comes with a customized, several-dozen-site webliography available through a password-protected portal. Both books open with an annotated table of contents to those links (sans URLs) and a page of facts about the chosen planet, then continue with accounts of how the planet, its moons, and its rings were discovered, and what subsequent observations-particularly with the Hubble Space Telescope and the Voyager 2 probe-have revealed. The authors highlight distinctive facts, such as the contributions of astronomer William Herschel's sister and colleague, Caroline, or the nitrogen geysers on Neptune's moon Triton, and close with open-ended looks outward, including, in Neptune, a mention of the recently discovered planetoid, Sedna. Though the internet portal isn't compatible with all browsing software, and many of the color illustrations are unvarnished screen shots with visible menu bars, both titles will make useful additions to multimedia-oriented collections.-John Peters, New York Public Library Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
