Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Venus has been called "Earth's twin" due to many factors. Venus is approximately the same size as our planet. Its rotation on a daily basis closely mirror's earth's as a day on Venus is roughly the same length as one on earth. However, beyond these traits, Earth and Venus are vastly different. For example, the average daily temperature on Venus is about 900 degrees Fahrenheit. That level of heat is greater than that generated by a conventional oven on earth. The Venusian atmosphere is made up of gasses that make life, as we know it, impossible. Venus is a bright point in the night sky but it is also a world so alien that it is hard to contemplate the forces that have shaped it. Author Steven Kipp addresses Venus and its strikingly different nature in this volume of "The Galaxy" series. Kipp does a fine job of detailing the basic nature of Venus. The harsh climate conditions linked to Venus' poisonous environment make it a planet that mankind cannot visit. Efforts to send probes to Venus have met with limited success. Thus, young readers of this book will gain valuable insights to the relatively unknown world of Venus. 2000, Bridgestone Books, Romaneck
