How did Uranus get its silly name, anyway? Spark early readers' natural curiosity about planets with this inquiry-based nonfiction approach to Uranus.

Poor Uranus – always the butt of jokes. Did you know that gas in its atmosphere makes the planet smell like rotten eggs? Or that it was probably hit billions of years ago, tipped over and now rotates on its side? Perfect for self-selection and early reports, this question-and-answer book covers Uranus' appearance and features, plus missions to the planet.

A Quick Facts chart provides fast facts while simple infographics support visual learners. A Stay Curious! Learn More feature encourages kids to keep asking questions while doubling as a mini media literacy lesson on research skills. Includes glossary and index.
