The glittering stars are attractive and the paintings have a folksy beauty, but the book as a whole feels a little thin and rushed to me. Nevertheless, for a young library patron exploring the stars, this wouldn’t be a bad place to start. Читать весь отзыв
Here are the stories of 10 great constellations – from Persons to Hercules, including Pegasus, Argo, Andromeda and Cassiopeia. Jacqueline Mitton sets contemporary fact against ancient legend; and Christina Balit portrays each constellation in loving detail. Drawing on the eternal lure of the universe, this makes an exciting introduction to the figures dominating our night sky.
Once Upon a Starry Night is an introduction to the lesser known constellations. It’s a companion book two others: Zodiac, which covers the twelve best known constellations, and Zoo in the Sky, which covers the animal constellations.
