"I can't wait till my pre-school grandson is a little bit older so that he can enjoy this great new book. It's perfect for the 4- to 8-year-old kids Bruce has written it for. I know I'd have eaten it up at that age. The bite-sized facts are fascinating and entertaining, and the jokes are...well, perfect for these young readers. I also love the design. Budding space geeks will find lots to keep them interested, while I expect many more kids will discover that the wonders of the universe can take them on a lifelong journey."—Mat Kaplan, Host and Producer of Planetary Radio
