Grade 6-10-- Parker outlines Galileo's discoveries in the context of the religious and social climate of his times, concluding with his trial by the Inquisition and his subsequent house arrest. The illustrations are mostly in full color, with a few portraits in black-and-white; some drawings help explain his discoveries. A two-page timeline relates the scientific events of Galileo's lifetime to events in politics, European expansion, and the arts. Given its brevity, this is a surprisingly informative volume. --Margaret M. Hagel, Norfolk Public Library System, VA
