From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4AWhat with falling comets and the recent arrival of the Galileo spacecraft, the past decade has been a busy one for the Jovian systemAso here's a timely, thoroughly revised edition of Simon's 1985 Jupiter (Morrow). It incorporates recent events and discoveries into a clearly written, dramatically illustrated tour of our largest planet and its four Galilean moons. Most of the first edition's eye-popping photographs have been replaced by even larger, closer views; those that remain look fresh, sharp, and bright. Similarly, the text has been rewritten, rearranged, and enhanced with plenty of new information about the impact of the Shoemaker-Levy comet, visible changes between the Voyager flybys in the late '70s and Galileo's observations, and the descent of Galileo's probe into the wild Jovian atmosphere. Expertly balancing the verbal and visual presentation, Simon again demonstrates his ability to inform and entertain simultaneously.AJohn Peters, New York Public Library
