Meet the Planets by John McGranaghan Illustrated by Laurie Allen Klein (Review & Giveaway)
My thoughts: The planets line up - all eight of them (remember #9 was disqualified just a few short years ago). They are in a contest much like a beauty contest. The aim is to choose the best planet. Well, we Earthlings obviously think planet Earth is best don't we? The author and illustrator have both packed a lot of information into this cute book giving us facts about each planet, history of astrology as it pertains to the planet being featured, etc. The storyline is cute and engaging.
The back of the book is has six pages packed with information that will engage the mind of an inquisitive kid - or adult. Lots of good stuff here for the home or school library shelf.
