From School Library Journal:

An exciting book that clearly differentiates fact from theory. After an explanation of the metric system and concepts important to the description of satellites, Kelch describes our solar system's 60 known moons in a lively style. The moons are presented individually and are grouped by planet. For each satellite, readers learn about its discovery, orbit, size, color, and surface features. Data from the Voyager flights supplement information previously available from telescopic observation. The last chapters describe asteroids and meteors. A 20-page "Checklist of Moons," a tabular summary of each satellite's characteristics, is a valuable feature. The index is inclusive and accurate. The illustrations are mostly black-and-white photographs scattered throughout the book and color photographs grouped in the center. All are cited in the text and are well-chosen to illustrate Kelch's verbal descriptions. A must purchase because it brings together so much information. --Margaret M.
