Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

From the Legendary Journeys series, this volume looks at space exploration and the solar system. A typical double-page spread includes an introductory paragraph and several illustrations accompanied by lengthy, small-print captions. Many pages telescope horizontally, with pages sliding out of sleeves formed by other pages, and extending almost three times their normal width. While the wide format is sometimes used effectively to illustrate a large rocket or a space shuttle (showing internal details through lifted flaps), at other times it adds little beyond novelty. Illustrations include photos, space-telescope images, and artists’ conceptions of spacecraft and space objects, events, and phenomena. For larger collections. Grades 4-7. --Carolyn Phelan

Verified Purchase
My husband and grandchildren all love vehicles of all kinds. I bought all three of the Legendary Journey books and they love them. They spend time together reading and talking about the wonderful images and features of these fact packed books. They are an excellent choice for all ages of "kids".
