Grade 5-9 Branley's clear, lucid style helps readers to comprehend the radical differences between Earth and Uranus, such as the fact that Earth and the other planets in our solar system spin on an almost vertical axis like a top, while Uranus rotates on a horizontal axis. Prior to the January 1986 fly-by of Voyager II, astronomers knew only what information could be derived from dim and far-away optical telescope photographs. Data sent back to Earth from Voyager II rendered many theories about Uranus obsolete. Black-and-white Voyager II photographs show details of the surfaces of Uranus and her satellites. Black-and-white line drawings are used to illustrate explanations, and a color photo insert is also included. A must purchase for both school and public libraries wishing to provide young readers with up-to-date and accurate science reading. Margaret M. Hagel, Norfolk Public Library System, Va.
