"I have seen many collections of traditional tales where buyers are attracted by lavish illustrations, but the re-telling is stilted and uninviting. Not so this lovely book which invites reading aloud and pouring together over the stylized illustrations that glitter with gold metallic ink. The collection includes star stories from many cultures, not just the Greek culture that gave us our Western constellation names. Each story begins with a map of the constellation. I know it is available on-line, but a useful addition to this book would have been a sky map that would locate the constellations in relation to one another. And while we are at it, how about locating the cultures where the stories originated? That said, I can see this book contributing nicely to astronomy, folklore and cultural curricula for classroom or homeschool use and being a cherished gift." said.
