Synopsis: First, Pluto left. Then it came back, along with Ceres and Eris...and now Haumea and MakeMake, too! The recent actions of the International Astronomical Union have put every solar system book out of date. In response, National Geographic joins forces with David Aguilar of the Harvard Smithsonian Astronomical Observatory to revise our 2008 book—and to update young readers on the high-interest topic of space. Using simple text and spectacular photorealistic computer art by the author, this book profiles all 13 planets in their newly created categories—plus the sun, the Oort Cloud, comets, and other worlds being discovered. Back-of-the-book activities offer hands-on fun for budding astronomers.
About the Author: David A. Aguilar is the author and illustrator of several books from National Geographic. His 13 Planets: The Latest View of the Solar System received the Eureka! Nonfiction Children's Book Gold Award from the California Reading Association. His writings are widely recognized for their ability to communicate the wonderment of science to enthusiasts of all ages. He is the originator of the Science Discovery program at the University of Colorado, Boulder; the popular host of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics Observatory Nights program; and the past director of the Fiske Planetarium.
