Review quote

'This book is jam-packed full of information about the Universe, from the Solar System to distant galaxies. The eye-catching illustrations are beautifully done, and are based on real astronomical images. This book really conveys the wonders of our Universe' - The Royal Society Young People's Book Prize 2014; 'What's not to love about another Usborne classic? This book is a sure-fire winner. With pages that fold out to reveal more fun facts and fabulous illustrations, this kept my young astrologers happy for ages' - Guardian Family Review Round Up; 'Big Book of Stars and Planets has four absolutely HUGE fold-out page spreads detailing our solar system, how stars are formed, intricate little details about the International Space Station, the Mars Rover and projects like the Hubble Telescope. To budding would-be astronauts, this is a science-fact voyage through the stratosphere' - Read it Daddy; 'The foldout [in Big Book of Stars and Planets] is particularly breathtaking, featuring art based on images taken by the Hubble telescope' - Science Magazine
