Offering a new spin on astronomy and earth sciences books for kids, this out-of-this world how-to details the making of a planet, namely the incredible, life-sustaining, one-in-a-billion planet Earth, starting with its basic ingredients, protons and neutrons, and making abstract concepts easier to understand.   

Scott Forbes is a writer and editor who has worked in publishing in the UK and Australia for more than 20 years. He is the author of The Reader’s Digest Children’s Atlas of the World and has contributed to numerous other natural history, science, travel and reference books.

Jean Camden is an award-winning director, animator and illustrator for Hackett Films in Australia. She’s been working across children’s content in print and TV for several years. 

A lively and original approach to a complex subject.
Kirkus Reviews

Information is presented in bite-size bits, with cartoonish illustrations, which should make for fun browsing. The approach and title may be quirky, but this is a solid nonfiction resource for libraries.
School Library Journal

It's an expansive topic, but tightly narrated paragraphs, lighthearted humor, and Camden's cartoon illustrations (including a boy in a red T-shirt who stands in for readers) keep it within reach.
