This was published back in 1999 when Pluto was still a planet. At the end of the book there is a brief blurb about all of the planets and a few extra tidbits. The book itself is pretty sweet. The story is told in verse. I could be wrong, but it sounded a lot like "The Night Before Christmas". It has been too long since I've studied iambic pentameter and all that. Great illustrations too. Lots of color and emotion.Andrew
it helps you learn about the planets and it is really cuteMason & Natalie
Cute story about some martians from Mars who travel to all the "Orbs" (planets) in the Milky Way. They try all the planets and find no life, until they land on Earth. It's a cute story, easy to read, but at the same time, it teaches the kids a little bit about the solar system. In the back there is information about each Orb/planet and it is the more "technical" information about what the martians from Mars found.Lynne
Very cute and educational!
