-topic which will make the reader gawp with amazement, such as it would take 4000 years to walk from Earth to Mars and because Uranus spins on its side, a night can last for 40 Earth years!The brightly coloured animated images and space travel timeline highlighting significant events in history will keep the reader's attention alive. The well-explained glossary is also very handy. However, the use of language and depth of information means the book is probably better suited for younger readers.
