With this amazing pop-up guide, young astronomers embark on a spectacular 3-D tour of the solar system, from the infernal surface of the sun to the deepest, darkest reaches of space. They explore each of the solar system’s regions in detail; discover the planets, comets, and asteroids; experience the Apollo 11 lunar landing; hitch a ride on the International Space Station; and even traverse the dusty red surface of Mars. Filled with engaging and informative text, it’s an out-of-this-world look at the mysteries of space.

Ian Graham is an experienced author of illustrated nonfiction books on a wide range of topics, including aviation and spaceflight. In 25 years, he has written more than 200 books and numerous magazine articles.
From the 3-D Exploration series, this large-format book offers a highly illustrated introduction to the solar system. Rather than the usual planet-by-planet tour with boxes of fast facts, the book combines a more general approach to the solar system with a few instances of more focused, detailed treatments. For example, Mars is mentioned twice on the double-page spread showing all the planets and in several sentences on the spread featuring the four inner planets. More detail is given in the “Landing on Mars” spread, which features a pop-up image of a Mars Rover ready for action, a paragraph of information, and 10 small, captioned pictures. Nicely designed, the book includes a good mix of photos and original illustrations. While students will prefer more traditional books for research, the five pop-up scenes give this one undeniable appeal for browsing. Grades 4-7. --Carolyn Phelan
