Professor Astro Cat's Frontiers of Space
Did you know that Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons, is the most likely place in the solar system to have extraterrestrial life? Or, if Earth was a cherry tomato, what size all the other planets would be? (Mercury would be a peppercorn, while Neptune would be a lime!) This eyecatching information book captures the excitement of finding out about space although children who already know a lot about this subject will find new facts to intrigue them.
This is a beautifully designed combination of up to date text written by an expert in the field which is integrated within illustrations by an artist whose use of shape and colour renders a retro feel. The use of Professor Astro Cat as a guide through the galaxies is an appealing device. His voice is humorous and authoritative, presenting complex ideas in an accessible way.
