Wouldn’t it be great to visit all the planets in our solar system? It might... but conditions in outer space are harsh. What would it take to survive? This humorous look at each planet and the moon illustrates the extremes necessary to visit other planets and shows the pros and cons of galactic real estate.

Gr 1-2-Suggesting at best only quick visits, these lighthearted excursions send a diverse cast of young explorers to various solar-system locales to check out landforms, the uniformly hostile atmospheric conditions, and such other features of note as Jupiter's Galilean moons ("the big kahunas"). Though readers will be left with pockets full of specific facts and also vivid impressions of what each destination is like, they will have to guess at the pronunciation of words like "maria" or "Enceladus," and may find the cartoon illustrations, which often dissolve into jumbles of color, less than informative. α(c) Copyright 2013.
