Boston really liked this book. The artwork in the book is interesting and different from any other space-themed book we have read. The book is about all the planets, not just Neptune.

Summary: In this book you get to take a trip with the author and illustrator through space. You learn lots of new facts that we might not have known before.

Personal Response: Next Stop Neptune really put the solar system in perspective. For example, it gives students a more accurate picture of how big the sun is to the rest of the planets. Imagine the sun shrunk to the size of a basketball, Jupiter would be the size of a marble and Pluto would be the size of the head of a pin. Next Stop Neptune

Contains outdated information about Pluto at this point, but otherwise really solid and chock-a-block with the kinds of facts that will make your head explode. ("The gas at the center of the sun is so dense that a drinking glass filled with it would weigh 75 pounds.")

Really awesome mixed media illustrations.
