Summary

Summary

Are there furry creatures on the moon? Or Martians who ride spaceships to Earth? Today we know Martians don't exist, but we also know that plants and animals may live far beyond our solar system. Franklyn M. Branley's text and Edward Miller's zany illustrations tap into kids' curiosity to give a dazzling tour of life among the stars. Updated with new photos from Mars and a "Find Out More" activity page.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 3-This fresh update (HarperCollins, 1986) has just enough text revision to warrant purchase for replacement, including positive statements on the existence of planets outside our solar system. Also new is a closing page inviting readers to design a space suit, think about how they would communicate with aliens, describe an imaginary planet, and visit a local planetarium. However, the main improvement in this edition is the complete change in illustration. A color photo of an astronaut on the moon (complete with landing module and American flag) and several color shots of Mars and Mercury are welcome inclusions. Miller's brightly colored cartoon artwork, complete with a vivid array of bug-eyed extraterrestrials, is sure to delight youngsters.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
