My tourist Guide to the Solar System

On 1st February 2012, a unique travel guide to the solar system will transport young explorers on an exhilarating adventure into outer space. London Mums love it because it is easy to read and also easy to understand a scientific topic that we as parents don’t always remember well 🙂
