This informational text discusses seven ways that a planet like ours could be destroyed. The usual suspects - comets and asteroids are discussed as well as black holes, super novas, and alien invasion. There is humor to the text and most of the illustrations as very well done. I am glad the author / illustrator took time to explain his process for the illustrations. I found some illustrations so lifelike that there were a few that seemed cheesy in comparison. I guess with Photoshop that is the risk you take.
