This straightforward but fascinating book takes a close look at Venus and shows young people just how different our neighboring planet is from our own.

Young readers will take a tour beneath the sulfur dioxide clouds and see the planets surface up close with images taken by the Magellan and the Venus Express missions. This book will surely fascinate any young person interested in alien worlds.
