Kathleen McInerney narrates the authors' hybrid--a fanciful travel guide to the solar system grounded in solid science. McInerney takes the wide-eyed, cheerful tone of a successful tour guide, patiently recounting basic facts about Earth's moon and each planet--distance from Earth, gravitational force, and the like--and then delving into potential vacation activities, like writers' retreats on Venus and hiking on Mars. The combination of clever writing and McInerney's charming performance is educational and entertaining for listeners who don't have strong scientific backgrounds and are interested in learning something about the cosmos. This is one of those ageless productions that will be a particularly great choice for family listening. A.F. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2017]
