From School Library Journal:

Grade 5 Up For anyone who's ever dreamed of taking a trip out of this world, here's the book to dream over. In an attractive large format with plenty of full-color photos and diagrams, Maurer traces what's known about the solar system and how people or probes have reached their destinations. To aid the imagination in putting readers on the space shuttle or "stowing away" on an unmanned probe, Maurer offers sidelights like how to put on a spacesuit and how the Voyager probes transmit color pictures to Earth. Especially interesting are same-scale photos of Earth's most impressive crater, canyon and volcano, with like features on the Moon and Mars. This is more inviting than Reginald Turnill's Space Age (Warne, 1980), which covers more types of spacecraft. Maurer comes up to the high marks Patricia Lauber's Journey to the Planets (Crown, 1982) set for appeal and clarity. With its lucid text, tibits of unusual information and spectacular photographs, this one's a must for armchair travelers into space. Margaret L. Chatham, formerly at Smithtown Library, N.Y.
