Summary
FANTASY & MAGICAL REALISM (CHILDREN'S / TEENAGE). The Ancient Greeks found patterns in the stars and told stories of the gods and heroes, the adventures and battles that lay behind these formations. This gorgeous book brings the tales of 12 key constellations to life, including Ursa Major, Andromeda, Pegasus, Orion, Scorpius and others. Each story is concisely recounted on a page that then opens out to provide a three-page canvas for Tom Kindley's striking graphic narrative. Luxuriantly packaged with fabric binding, gold metallic printing and a fold-out star map at the back of the book, this is a spectacular book on a popular subject matter that will appeal to older children and adults alike. Ages 5+
