Reviews

An amazing, fun and fact-packed trip

-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. Despite this, Journey Through the Solar System is a fantastically colourful introduction to those discovering the incredible Solar System for the first time. Three out of five stars. -- Sim The Guardian http://www.theguardian.com/childrens-books-site/2014/jan/02/review-journey-through-the-solar-system-simon-abbott
