Not very good

You got to learn all about the solar system in this book. You also found out scientists are trying to prove that the Oort cloud is real. All of the gas planets have rings around them and the one that has seven layers of rings is Saturn.

It has lots of interesting facts, but i prefer fiction books because I like to read stories with characters. I like funny books.

I love astronomy so I really enjoyed this book! It’s soo good! This book doesn’t really talk much about other galaxies and mainly focuses on all the details and little facts about the planets in our solar system. You’ll start your epic journey with Dr Maggie here on Earth, then travel to the moon and from there to our humongous hot star, the sun. From the sun you’ll explore all of the rocky planets in our solar system, and even land on them! Then you’ll cross the asteroid belt and journey out deep into the outer solar system! From there you’ll see Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune! You can’t land on those though as they are gas and ice giants and don’t have a solid surface for you to stand on. You can, though, land on some of their amazing moons and explore those in depth! Some of the planets in the outer solar system have quite a few moons…. After that you’ll visit the Kuiper belt and see the dwarf planets Pluto, Eris, Haumea, and Makemake. You’ll even get to land on Pluto and explore its 5 moons! After that you’ll go even deeper into the unknown and you may, or may not, encounter Planet 9 (that may not even exist)! Well if you think you’ve already traveled far then get ready for the Oort Cloud. It’s only 100,000 AU (15 trillion km) from the sun! And considering how big our universe is, that’s almost nothing! So, are you brave enough to explore our solar system? I KNOW you are! Get ready for the trip of a lifetime! Happy space travels! Xx

This book was non-fiction. The book was about space, The book blasted off and a rocket went into space and showed all the planets in the solar system. My favorite planet to read about was Neptune. The winds on Neptune go at hyper speed and might blow you away, and the storm is called a scooter but you need more than a scooter to escape from it. I really enjoyed reading about the ship's database. The ship's database told you quick facts about space. I did enjoy reading the book.

Really good as it informed you about the Solar system whilst she’s travelling in her shuttle from one planet to another.

Duchess Petunia Owl 05.07.2022


I really liked this book because it was very interesting and the pictures were fun! I love learning about space and this book had lots of new facts. I loved the fact that the book was like a journey from the Earth to the Sun to the Oort Cloud . I think everyone should read this book.
