Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara L. Talcroft
Originally published in Australia, this "New Solar System" series delivers the latest astronomical news through 2008, illustrations on every page, and many statistics. In five or six brief chapters, young scientists will learn about the planets and other heavenly bodies as well as the space exploration that provided us with information on those objects. The book also includes a short explanation and illustration of the Greek or Roman deities associated with the planets, which is an attractive extra. This title focuses on Uranus, whose namesake is shown as the starry Greek sky god and the father of Saturn. In Uranus, readers will discover that this heavy, gas-giant planet is lying on its side, which causes very unusual seasons. Another chapter explores Uranus's atmosphere of hydrogen, helium, and methane, which gives the planet its blue-green color, its emission of ultraviolet light, and the radio signals that come from the planet's magnetic field. "Rings and Moons" describes Uranus's thirteen rings and twenty-seven moons with names like Ariel, Titania (discovered in 1787), and Oberon (the most distant); budding astronomers may not know that some rings have small "shepherd" moons that help keep their particles in place. For those intrigued by space exploration, the author explains that Uranus has been photographed by the Hubble Space Telescope and visited by space probe Voyager 2, which will send back information until 2030. Clear, no-nonsense text moves along briskly, while illustrations, which are mostly in saturated colors on dark backgrounds, are eye-catching. The book also includes a "Uranus Fact Summary," a glossary, and a list of websites to provide further help tostudents. Reviewer: Barbara L. Talcroft
