Publisher's Description

From Basher, the illustrator who showed the periodic table in a whole new light and gave us his fresh spin on physics, bioligy, astronomy and rocks and minerals, comes Planet Earth, a book that sheds light on this rock we live on, from its mountains and ocean depths to the storms that whirl around it.

Editorial Reviews

Basher continues his series of science primers that are so entertaining, kids may read them for fun, beyond the classroom walls. . . .the authors blend a surprising wealth of facts into the chatty, humorous text, which is filled with analogies kids can relate to. A hot spot in the earth’s mantle, for example, is “like a huge, angry pimple on Earth’s face. . . . ” the highly approachable language, animated cast of characters, awe-inspiring facts, and conservation messages make this an appealing starting point for students seeking basic earth-science information.
Library Media Connection
This small book will surely find interest among both science and non-science students. The easy-to-read text and colorful Japanese-style cartoon graphics presents a fact-based and often personified description of the basic features of planet Earth. . . . Bulleted items at the bottom of each page provide scientific trivia, which may lead students to do more investigation and research. This is a fun and engaging introduction to the place we call home and will surely spark an interest in other titles by this author.
