The Stars:
A New Way to See Them

The Stars: A New Way to See Them
by H.A. Rey

Like H.A. Rey's other book about the stars, this title has been newly updated to include recent advancements in space science (like the reclassification of Pluto).  This classic, hefty guide to the stars, constellations, and planets in the night sky is still "the best book available for its purpose."

If the name H.A. Rey sounds familiar, it is because he is the author and illustrator of the Curious George series.

This book is very straightforward and not flashy in any way!  However, we agree with the Saturday Review that this book is "a brilliant example of the combined use of art and writing in bringing science to the layman."  The writing and illustrations are clear and communicate the science being explained.
