Dover coloring book Mars Exploration: Fact and Fantasy includes novels and films

Here’s a quiet but fun activity that mom and dad can enjoy when the kids return to school next week: Mars Exploration: Fact and Fantasy (2002), a Dover Publications coloring book written and drawn by Bruce LaFontaine. This “fascinating book chronicles factual and fantastic aspects of Mars in 44 dramatic ready-to-color illustrations," among them a scene from Edgar Rice Burroughs' timeless novel A Princess of Mars (1912, 1917), Ray Bradbury's classic collection The Martian Chronicles (1950), and Arthur C. Clarke’s underrated work The Sands of Mars (1952), as well as the Hollywood film versions of The War of the Worlds (1953) and Invaders from Mars (1953). Enjoy the fun!
