Product description

What is hiding in the sky when the stars come out? Some people see only squiggles and loops. But in the past, astronomers saw whole constellations of animals – a zoo in the sky! Learn how to see the star zoo yourself with this treasure of a book, which goes on a magical journey through the night sky, spotting constellations in the shapes of animals, birds and fishes. The lyrical text and glorious illustrations are supplemented by sky maps and an information spread. A night-time book full of magic and mystery from Jacqueline Mitton, a respected astronomer who has a comet named after her!
