Summary
Large, vibrant paintings and shimmering foil stars make a brilliant connection between age-old stargazing tales and the constellations. Full-color illustrations with silver foil highlights.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 5^-8. Using sparkling silver stars to indicate animal constellations in the night sky, this colorful picture book certainly has eye appeal. Each turn of the page brings another horizontal spread featuring one constellation, delineated by the shining stars and fleshed out with a well-designed, brilliantly colored portrait of the beast. The accompanying text generally consists of five or six lines, such as, "The Scorpian has a nasty sting in his tail. Beware as he scuttles across the Milky Way." Mitton, with a Ph.D. in astrophysics from Cambridge, limits herself to this rather fanciful and disjointed accompaniment to the well-designed illustrations until the last two pages, which are given over to excellent discussions of stars, the constellations, and the night sky. Sky maps appear on the endpapers. Students researching individual constellations will need more substance; however, younger children will find this a visually dynamic introduction to the animal constellations. --Carolyn Phelan"
