About the Book
From the burning surface of Venus to the freezing darkness of Neptune, Gail Gibbons takes children on a tour of our planetary neighbors—which are very different from each other in size, shape, orbit, and even weather. Since The Planets was first published in 1993, space exploration has resulted in many new achievements and discoveries. They include the successful 2012 landing of the Mars rover Curiosity, the stunning views of Pluto captured in 2015 by the New Horizons spacecraft, and more. In this newly revised fourth edition, The Planets reflects some of these wondrous advances, while still offering young readers a timeless and accessible look at our solar system.
