From the Publisher"Through engaging and child-friendly language, Scott discusses the history ... behind the discovery of the nine planets.... A great resource." School Library Journal, Starred
"Beautifully designed.... A good choice for updating astronomy collections." Booklist, ALA
Illustrations include photographs of astronomers and outer space; artists' renderings of simulations, such as a protoplanetary disk forming around a star; and diagrams of various planetary features. A glossary, recommended readings and websites, and an index round out the book.
Color photos and diagrams are both attractive and informative, and slightly oversized fonts makes the subject seem less daunting.
