This magical picture-information book, featuring constellations named after animals, birds and fishes, introduces young children to an astonishing zoo in the sky. The author is a distinguished writer and lecturer on astronomy, and the vivid, poetic text is accompanied by glowing illustrations, accurate in detail. The descriptive text is supplemented by sky maps on the endpapers and information on the location and movement of stars in the sky and the history of the constellations. Zoo in the Sky is a striking gift book and an educational tour de force, combining facts with imagination, to fascinate children aged 5 and up.Biografía del autor:
