Larry Dane Brimner is the author of several nonfiction books for children.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4 Brimner recasts and updates Dennis Brindell Fradin's same-titled "New True Book" introductions to the biggest of the giant planets Jupiter (1992; o.p.) and Saturn (1993, both Children's) adding to the simply phrased catalog of basic facts quick close-ups of major moons, as well as recent observations made by space probes and the Hubble Space Telescope. The texts, printed in large, well-leaded type, read smoothly; the illustrations, also large, are nearly all crisply reproduced, enhanced-color photos. The back matter includes books, Web sites, and fact summaries. Considering the astronomical speed at which our knowledge of the universe is expanding, these titles will make timely additions to any collections serving young readers who prefer their nonfiction in straight shots, unmixed with plot lines or wisecracks.
