The Playful Planets

Did you know that the planets are the original superheroes of myth and legend?

In this unique children's book series, the planets personalities reflect their roles in myth and legend. The beautiful and original artwork brings them to life in true superhero style.

Mr Bully is MARS, the God of War; Veronica VENUS the Goddess of Love and Beauty; Jovial Jove is JUPITER, the God of Justice; Mickey MERCURY the Winged Messenger; Uri URANUS the Magician; Neville NEPTUNE the God of the Deep; and SATURN is Old Father Time (Kronos). Marvin the miserable man in the MOON lives next to our beautiful blue-green planet, Maggie Mother EARTH.

In many older languages, especially those of Latin origin, the days of the week are named after the planets. In Spanish, for example, Monday is El Lunes (from Lunar, the Moon), Tuesday is Martes (Mars), Wednesday is Miércoles (Mercury), Thursday is Jueves (Jupiter), and Friday is Viernes (Venus). In English, Saturday is short for Saturn day, and Sunday is the day of the Sun. The month of March is also named after the planet Mars.
