Nine planets
-- More than seventy moons --
And hundreds of stellar facts about the
Solar System!

2. Halley's comet returns every seventy-six years.
3. The universe is 15 to 20 billion years old.

Blast Off and discover the secrets of outer space! Have you ever wondered why our galaxy is called "the Milky Way," or if you could really catch a shooting star? Here's your chance to find out without ever leaving Earth. Best-selling author Kenneth C. Davis packs fascinating facts and riddles into his signature question-and-answer format. He makes exploring the solar system an out-of-this-world experience!

Review:

Five minutes with this book, and no one will be able to say they "don't know much about the solar system." Chock-full of facts, questions, and answers about the sun, gravity, planets, astronauts, space exploration, asteroids, the moon, and so much more, Kenneth C. Davis's Don't Know Much About the Solar System is a terrific resource for anyone interested in what's out there. Geared toward readers aged 6 to 9, the book uses a fun question-and-answer format, as well as riddles and humorous illustrations by Pedro Martin, to make learning about the solar system a positively sunny experience. Young readers discover why the moon is different shapes on different nights, which planets (besides Saturn) have rings, what's beyond the Milky Way, and why, if the earth is round, people on the other side don't fall off.

Davis, author of the bestselling Don't Know Much About History, has turned to a younger audience with his Don't Know Much About series. Don't Know Much About the 50 States is a great companion to the solar system title, while Don't Know Much About Planet Earth and Don't Know Much About Space work well for older readers. (Ages 6 to 9) --Emilie Coulter
