This book introduces the reader to modern-day Mars exploration and what scientists think we might learn about Mars and whether it once supported life. The book is divided into three well-illustated and attractive chapters, each one designed to pull the reader into more detail about Mars research and information about the planet. Ms. Carson has clearly spoken to real scientists in the field and it shows. The information is accurate, there are no typos (although there are some incomplete sentences, but they make sense), and the book is attractive and encourages further research.
Kudos to the author and the publisher on this series. Kennedy, Carol
