Join space scientist Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock (MBE) as she embarks on a fascinating tour of the Solar System.

Embark on a mind-blowing visual journey and visit the most magnificent sights and spectacles outer space has to offer. From the celestial bodies that surround us and their incredible characteristics, to the many moons, asteroids, comets, space stations and satellites that hover beyond the stratosphere, this epic tour leaves no question unanswered and no meteorite unturned.

Just how much would it cost to colonise Mars? Could a terrestrial animal survive on the blistering-hot surface of Venus? What does the future of space travel have to offer and where are we going next?

Dr Maggie's Grand Tour of the Solar System takes readers on the trip of a light-speed lifetime - from the proximity of the surface of our very own planet to the furthest sectors of the Solar System.

Quick facts:

The tallest mountain in the Solar System can be found on Mars. Called Olympus Mons, it's a whopping 21.2 km tall.

Mars is covered in rust. If you get a chance to look at Mars with a telescope or binoculars, you'll notice its deep red colour. The colour is caused by a chemical compound known as iron oxide, also called rust.

Mars would be a brilliant place to play basketball. The force of gravity is much weaker on Mars than it is on Earth. As a result, a human could jump at least two and a half times higher as a Martian.

Rusty is a friendly robot, but not a very happy one; he's feeling down about the way that he sounds. The other robots on Planet Robotone - Belle, Twango, Hoot and Boom-Bot - show Rusty that being a little bit different is the best way to be, and together make a raucous song and dance that celebrates their differences. This charming story about friendship, self-discovery and the strength of pooling everyone's talents together has a strong, empowering message of acceptance and embracing individuality. With wonderful, contemporary illustrations that will appeal to young children and parents alike, the story will provoke thought - and conversation - about being different, and how we should all embrace our characteristics and be comfortable and confident in ourselves.
