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.

This new edition of The Planets reflects some of these wondrous advances, while still offering young readers a timeless and accessible look at our solar system.
