From School Library Journal Grade 3-5-Vogt displays his usual firm grasp of matters astronomical with a precise but not overwhelming array of facts, presented in a lively way-"If you could place Saturn in a giant tub of water, the planet would float!" Plenty of sharp, full-color photos (with captions noting color enhancement, artists' renditions, and composites) both illustrate each planet's salient features-rings, moons, cloudy atmosphere-and lend an air of mystery; studying these pictures will move readers to ponder, along with scientists, the many questions still to be answered. This said, however, it needs to be pointed out that these titles will be superfluous to most collections; among others, Childrens Press, Facts on File, Gareth Stevens, Morrow, and Watts have recently published books on Saturn alone, not to mention the plethora of surveys covering the entire solar system or the Voyager probes' observations. Enough, already.
