Stories in the Stars

Stores in the Stars An Atlas of Constellations by Susanna Hislop Illustrated by Hannah WaldronTravel the night sky and discover the universe of stories in the stars. To those who can decipher it, the night sky is alive with gods and goddesses, animals and mythical creatures--an endless carnival played out in the shining constellations. Amid this jet-black canvas pricked with white dots, a hunter leaps in pursuit with his dogs at his heels, a sea monster threatens a maiden in distress, and a pair of twins lives forever. Leaping between centuries, cultures, and traditions, "Stories in the Stars" explores each of the night sky's eighty-eight constellations through gorgeous illustrations and vivid descriptions that will linger in the mind long after you've closed the book and stepped outside on a starry night.
