Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
What are UFOs? This book explores that enduring question. It is part of the "XScience Series: Imagination Library" books that introduce fascinating subjects through accurate, easy-to-understand text and stunning, full-color, full-page photographs. These books are designed to stimulate the imagination of young readers and expand their understanding of the world. This volume in the series explains what UFOs are, and describes recent sightings and events in Roswell, New Mexico, the "UFO capital." The book also explores the possibility of secret government projects, how to report a UFO sighting, and what kind of research is currently underway. This volume includes suggestions for additional reading, web sites, glossary and index. Photographs and drawings complement the book with explanations of each. These are good easy readers for almost anyone. 2002, Gareth Stevens Publishing/A World Almanac Education Group Company, Ages 8 to 12.
