The night sky comes alive for young stargazers in this follow-up to the popular Zoo in the Sky. Poetic text and illustrations highlighted by shimmering stars combine seamlessly to tell the stories of ten men and women of classical Greek mythology and how their names became associated with the constellations that decorate the heavens. Readers will be captivated by delightful tales of the courageous Perseus and his true love, the Princess Andromeda; the mystical winged horse Pegasus; Argo, the ship Jason and the Argonauts sailed in search of the Golden Fleece; and Hercules, son of Zeus and strongest of the Greek demigods. Rounding out the fascinating cast of characters are Orion, Ophiuchus, Cassiopeia, Centaurus, and Lyra. The ten stories of the constellations are followed by a discussion of stars, nebulas, and galaxies. A star map completes the book.
