For as long as people have stared up to the stars, we’ve wondered if there could be life on other planets. But the truth is that life can’t survive anywhere else in our solar system. Venus is way too hot. Neptune is w-a-a-a-ay too cold. And don’t even get us started on Uranus. But there’s more to Earth than just having the perfect temperature that makes it the best place in the known universe to live. Join Goldilocks and her best friend, Baby Bear, on an interstellar adventure to learn all about our solar system in this informative, hilarious, and 100 percent factual nonfiction picture book!
Award-winning author-illustrator Drew Sheneman brings budding astronomers the truth about the solar system with this informative book narrated by an exuberant, space-loving Goldilocks. Sheneman packs his story with fascinating facts and a mixture of both realistic and hilarious details, from a careful illustration of Saturn's icy rings to the realization that, "If you tried to stand on the surface of Saturn, you’d sink into a toxic soup of gas and ice until the pressure popped you like a grape." It's the perfect way to teach kids everything they didn’t know (and never thought to ask) about space!
"Guided by a disheveled-looking White gent in a lab coat and clad in bubble-helmeted spacesuits, the blond, White young burglar and her ursine counterpart, cracking wise as they go, hop from one inhospitable planet to the next... Paired with broader approaches to understanding our place in the universe, like Tom Sullivan’s Out There (2019), this lively excursion will leave audiences stirred by what lies around them as well as what awaits up in the skies." — Kirkus Reviews
