Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Children's Literature

This book is illustrated with colorful photographs and digital artwork...A good value.

Children's Literature
Open this book and set out on an intergalactic journey through our solar system to the far reaches of the universe. From the Kingfisher Knowledge series, this book is designed to "take readers into the heart of a subject . . . " and to guide them "through a wealth of information" on a particular topic and answer a lot of questions. Did the universe begin with a bang? How are stars created? What is a black hole? What are those dirty snowballs in the outer reaches of our solar system? Who studies the universe and how do they gather information about objects so unimaginably far away? This book is illustrated with colorful photographs and digital artwork. At the end of each chapter, readers will find a summary of the main points as well as links to websites, books and places to visit. A glossary and an index are located on the last pages. A good value. 2005, Kingfisher/Houghton Mifflin, Ages 9 to 12.
