Description:

With the help of a magical creature named AboGado, Rashad and Angie visit planet Venus, and are given a guided tour by Venus, herself! Venus explains how to find the planet in the morning and evening sky. When they climb through AboGado's portal they experience a bumpy ride on Venus' cloud cabana while she guides them to see the major features of the surface of the planet, including pancake mountains, folded tessera, gigantic craters, ocean trench-like lowlands, and continent-like highlands. She regales with stories about the Morning Star from many cultures. Beautiful photographs throughout the book illustrate various aspects of the science. When they get home, Rashad gets a nasty lesson in the chemistry of Venus' clouds. With a foreword by Tony Spear, the project manager of NASA's historic Magellan mission to Venus. A glossary to scientific and technical terms is included.
