classic! (even if Pluto isn't a planet anymore)
Listened and followed along to this story with my baby brother. The cassette is long gone, but still have the book. Now sharing it with my kids. ♡♡

Cool in a retro futuristic way--loved!
Would you listen to Adventures in the Solar System again? Why?
I plan on listening again MANY times. Useful information about the planets, super cool sound effects, neat narration. This is an undiscovered gem!
Who was your favorite character and why?
I liked the child narrator the best. It's unusual, I think, for children to narrate books but I think it's very effective.
Did Geoffrey T. Williams do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
All the characters are very different, so yes. There is child named WIll. He jumps into a robot called Planetron, which is also a spaceship. That is an older man's voice. There is a spunky female robot who is the data system for the ship. There are Will's parents, briefly. The robot/data system's voices have some sort of sound effect over them to make them sound more robo
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
A tour of the planets
Any additional comments?
Just that this is awesome. Held the attention of both the 6 year old, but also the 3 year old. Even if the smaller children can't concentrate on the narration about the methane concentration on Jupiter, they will like the cool sound effects, etc.
There is a small sort of bell sound that is somewhat distracting at times, but did not bother me; I think it is probably a signal to turn a page on a physical book. In any event, it did not bother us.
