Product Description

"They say they reach for the Stars, but they only seem to get this far!" laments Marvin, the miserable man in the Moon.

This is the first book in the Playful Planets
series. It teaches children the names of the
planets and some of the myths and legends
associated with them in a simple, colourful,
and entertaining way.

The planets introduce themselves, and watch a
rocket ship from Earth fly through space. They
wonder where the rocket will end up, and
express some of their fears about the
human space program. The original artwork
really brings their personalities to life.

The planets play a big part in our lives,
whether we realise it or not. In many
cultures, the days of the week and months of
the year are named after them. Saturday is
named after the planet Saturn, for example,
and the month of March after the planet Mars.

Their role in so much mythology is not in
doubt. Mars is known as the God of War, Venus
the Goddess of Love, and Saturn as Old
Father Time
. The list goes on.

Learning can be fun.
