"In contrast to the "Astronomy Now!" series, Mars receives more careful treatment here, even though (like its eight series mates) it totals fewer than 160 words in length, plus back matter. Except that each volume opens with a schematic view of the planets circling an apple-red sun, the predominantly photographic illustrations in this series impart a good sense of what each planet looks like, both from a distance and (for those that have a surface) at ground level. With the exception of Pluto, these are almost imperceptibly revised from their 2003 editions." - School Library Journal
