Overview

INSIDERS -- a visually groundbreaking, state-of-the-art nonfiction series that outshines Eyewitness and Discoveries. This stunning new series offers an inside look into twelve riveting subjects, beginning with Dinosaurs, Egypt, Oceans, and Space. Expertly written, each book will feature an arresting design, complete with dynamic, multi-layered CGI and 3-D model imagery that is complemented by fascinating, up-to-date information presented in a user-friendly format.

With state-of-the-art illustrations that reveal the anatomy of a supernova; provide a glimpse of the inner workings of a comet; and probe the surface terrain of Mars, Space is a young explorer's guide to every aspect of the universe.

Editorial Reviews

Double-page spreads and eye-catching, state-of-the-art illustrations that seem to jump out at you are just some of the alluring features of Simon & Schuster's Insiders series. The three-dimensional quality of the interior is prefigured by each book's vivid embossed, metallic cover. But this book isn't just glitz and pictures: it covers the subject in detail. Appealing graphics; memorable factoids.

This is a great book for anyone who wishes just to know more about space.With both new information and detailed insights, this book explains those common, but some-what hard to understand aspects of this intriguing part of science.It illustrates things(some in sequence) like how saturn acquired it rings, how martian meorites have ended up on earth, natural processes of stars and formation, the birth of the solar system,etc.also illustrated are the comparitive sizes of pluto,fascinating facts and much more.Trust me this is a book the young naturalist or scientist wouldn't want to miss.A great deep indroduction to the universe.
