The night sky comes alive for young stargazers, as shimmering stars combine to tell the stories of ten men and women of classical Greek mythology and their constellations that decorate the heavens.


Readers will be captivated by the tales of the courageous Perseus and his true love, the Princess Andromeda, the mystical winged horse Pegasus, 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, all traced in a star map.
