by H. A. Rey
The creator of Curious George eliminates the confusing allegorical or geometrical shapes of the constellations that have frustrated many would-be stargazers and, instead, presents them in shapes that correspond to their names. With 40 charts, many diagrams, and a sprinkling of humor, this clear and readable text gives a new sparkle to the stars and makes the mechanics of the universe intelligible even to the beginner. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 160 pages.
