This book is great because the pictures are awesome, with cut-outs to make it even more interesting, and the poems for the most part are entertaining. Not only are most of the poems good, rhyming without being corny, each one gives accurate facts about its subject. The one on Pluto is hilarious especially since it takes into account Pluto's demotion. I think I could stare at the pictures for hours. The style isn't quite like anything else I've ever seen and they do an excellent job of complementing the poems.
