“This volume in the Do You Really Want to Visit . . . ? series takes one young girl on trip to Neptune—and it’s not all that fun. First, she has to pack 12 years of food just to get there, ‘including gross grown-up food,’ because by the time she arrives there, she will be a grown-up. Worse, Neptune is a sweltering gas giant with winds of more than 1,200 miles per hour. The girl tries to land on a ‘slushy ocean of water, ammonia, and methane,’ but—wouldn’t you know it?—her ship melts. Fabbri’s blue-hued illustrations marry a retro sensibility with exaggerated cartoon angles and fit nicely with Heos’ conversational text. A stopover at Pluto and a few moons finishes off this cautionary tour. Consider this a kinder, younger version of Scholastic’s venerable You Wouldn’t Want To . . . series. ”—Daniel Kraus
