Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Like a Facebook for the universe, Astronomy gives every important celestial body and concept its own page, where readers can learn its behaviors, likes, and dislikes up close and personal. From the flashy stars to the shadowy and strange objects that hang out like loners at the edges of the universe, no player goes unnoticed. Every profile has a hip anime-style portrait to round out the picture, but make no mistake: while the presentation is all style, the science is rock solid.  The book includes a super cute poster of the solar system in the back. The universe has never been so cool.

Dan Green is a freelance science writer and editor.

Simon Basher is an artist and designer who has fun playing in the world of contemporary character design. Inspired by a love of simple line work and a rich palette, his characters blend the edge of manga with the cuteness of Hello Kitty.

"Basher has created a portrait gallery of personified . . . celestial bodies in a hyper-cute, pastel cartoon style reminiscent of Japanese artist Takashi Murakamis more extravagant flights . . . Greens astro-narrative is both accurate and spiced with seldom-mentioned details . . . it could kindle (or in under motivated older readers, rekindle) interest in the topic. And its fun!"—School Library Journal
