From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-4?What would living on Mars be like? Though surface conditions there are closer to those of Earth than any other planet's, human colonists would still face severely low levels of oxygen, water, and atmospheric pressure, plus temperatures that drop "to 195 degrees below zero." After a quick history of our interest in the Red Planet, from the observations of ancient astronomers, through The War of the Worlds to the upcoming Mars Global Surveyor and Mars Pathfinder missions, Schraff describes a variety of unlikely but excitingly large-scale plans to make Mars more habitable for invaders from Earth. Ultimately, she rejects "terraforming"?exploding superbombs beneath the surface, focusing giant mirrors on the poles, or releasing CFCs to create a greenhouse effect?in favor of much quicker "para-terraforming" schemes involving domes, underground quarters, and other structures. The illustrations ably mix full-color and black-and-white photos with artist's conceptions to give viewers a good idea of what Mars looks like now, and what it could become. A swift once-over that will encourage young readers to do some planetary imagineering of their own.?John Peters, New York Public Library
