"Last year I went on a round-the-world trip. This year I'm going somewhere different." In a century or so, this joke could well be a reality. Space will no longer be the final frontier, but the holiday destination of choice. When technology catches up with the dream, My Tourist Guide to the Solar System...and Beyond will be there to show the way. In the meantime, My Tourist Guide is the perfect way for the armchair astronaut to learn about the solar system. Forget wading through heavy tomes and encylcopedias: here children can discover the secrets of the planets, moons, and other satellites without feeling like it's hard work. Glorious digital artworks reveal stunning details, while the science is relayed through the quirky guidebook approach of "things to see" and "what to pack". Different, exciting, unique, and fun - My Tourist Guide to the Solar System...and Beyond is bound to be an astronomical success.
