Everything Awesome About Space and Other Galactic Facts!

Scholastic/Orchard. (Everything ­Awesome.). Sept. 2021. 128p. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9781338359749.
Gr 2-6–The third installment in Lowery’s “Everything Awesome” series focuses on everything cosmic. Sections include the universe, the solar system, the stars, space rocks, and space exploration. The broadest section—space exploration—includes profiles of prominent figures in space exploration and important space missions amid a hodgepodge of other information. Readers will enjoy the silly jokes and drawing tutorials that are included at the end of the book. The illustrations are out of this world (pun intended) and extremely eye-catching. There are several spreads that include a larger illustration with more information about a single specific topic. Readers will love exploring each page to learn the secrets of the universe. The table of contents is thorough and there is a brief listing of resources that Lowery used to compile the book’s information. The one drawback is the reuse of certain space jokes throughout.
VERDICT A strong purchase for public and school libraries and for collections where other Lowery offerings are popular.
