Join Max and friends on their visit to (and study of) Jupiter's volcanically active moons and ice-encrusted oceans

Scientifically-accurate illustrations and information-packed sidebars enrich this second edition picture book, the third in this acclaimed series about diversity and space exploration. Set in the future, Max the dog's friend, Tori, is all grown up and is the chief scientist of the Jupiter Mission. In order to reach their spacecraft, Max and his crew must take an amazing ride on a new device called the Space Elevator. Once they've probed the planet's atmosphere, Max and friends begin exploring two of Jupiter's moons—the volcanically active moon Io and the ice-encrusted moon Europa. On Europa, Max once again saves the day by locating a weak spot in the ice to launch a submarine and explore the ocean below.  The first editon of Max Goes to Jupiter was selected for NASA's Story Time From Space Program and ILA Children's Choices List.
