Booklist Review: "This large-format volume from the Amazing Science: Planets series spotlights Mars. Basic information appears in a few sentences of text on each broad, double-page spread, often with a boxed Fun Fact (more factual than actually fun), such as Mars orbits the sun in an oval-shaped path. Instead of the usual images from NASA, the book features simple illustrations that often have the look of cut-paper collage. In one scene of Earth's night sky, Mars is shown looking larger and more distinctly a planet than one would actually see without a telescope, and the planets tend to look a bit flat rather than spherical. However, the large, bold pictures lend themselves to sharing in a classroom setting. Capped with end matter that includes an activity, related books, and directions for accessing Web links, this is a serviceable choice for libraries seeking primary-grade materials on the subject. With the exception of the volume on dwarf planets, each book in the series focuses on a single planet in our solar system.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2008 Booklist"
