Reviews
★ "Breathtaking. . . this unique look at Mars' terrain has something to offer a range of space explorers, from the April Pulley Sayre set, who like their images with short, expressive text, to older picture-book readers, unafraid of sinking their teeth into some real science. . . The larger, main text is descriptive and poetic, full of satisfying alliteration and consonance. . . . Each phrase is perfectly paired with its dramatic photo, while the paragraphs offer facts and fascinating statistics. . . . Informative back matter." --Booklist, Starred Review

"Successful at creating a sense of curiosity and wonder."--The Horn Book
