Comets, Stars, the Moon, and Mars: Space Poems and Paintings Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Blast off with Douglas Florian's new high-flying compendium, which features twenty whimsical poems about space. From the moon to the stars, from the Earth to Mars, here is an exuberant celebration of our celestial surroundings that's certain to become a universal favorite among aspiring astronomers everywhere. Includes die-cut pages and a glossary of space terms.

Each poem receives a thumbnail gloss at the end, offering additional facts or extending the information presented earlier. Glorious." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

A poetry collection that's truly out of this world.
