Don't know much about space? Interested in finding out where the good vacation spots would be on Mars if humans ever lived there? Wondering how many stars are out there in the universe? All these answers and 10 billion trillion more can be found in the latest volume from Kenneth C. Davis's fun Don't Know Much About series for kids. Oh wait--10 billion trillion is the number of stars in the universe, not answers in the book. Using a lively, witty question-and-answer format, Davis provides remarkable information about the sun, stars, planets, and the universe, and encourages readers to contemplate such issues as humans' ability to travel to and live in other worlds.
Kenneth Davis, author of the bestselling Don't Know Much About History, as well as Don't Know Much About Planet Earth, Don't Know Much About the Solar System, Don't Know Much About the 50 States, etc., has a special knack for bringing science and history alive. Simple and amusing drawings by illustrator Sergio Ruzzier accompany the text. (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie CoulterFrom the Inside Flap:
