    "Broader in focus, more detailed, and more up-to-date than most children’s books on the subject, this well-designed volume will be a useful addition to astronomy collections." 

    —Booklist  

     

    "Scott excels at rendering complex ideas intelligible: radioactive dating, the science of craters, the role of a planet's atmosphere, and much more are clearly presented. Well-captioned illustrations and photographs, diagrams, and pithy text boxes round out this handsome package." 

    —Kirkus Reviews 

     

    "An approachable guide to our planet’s sole (natural) satellite."
