About the Author:

Gail Gibbons has written and illustrated more than fifty titles with Holiday House. She has always been fascinated by nature and loves exploring and revisiting ideas for Children’s books. Before creating children’s books, she worked for NBC television. She lives in Corinth, Vermont, and her website is www.gailgibbons.com.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-3–Gibbons's view of our solar system may no longer be valid, but she's really focusing her attention so far beyond local space that the damage is minor. Between an opening description of the Milky Way and a closing claim that galaxy formation is still going on, the author depicts ancient astronomers at work, describes several kinds of telescopes, and profiles five distinctive galactic forms, from irregular to lenticular. Pairing brief, matter-of-fact generalizations leavened with digestible doses of specific information to painted scenes that link diverse groups of human observers to galaxies seen in blobby, broadly brushed portraits, this introduction to some of the universe's largest structures will put stars in the eyes of the most Earthbound young readers.–John Peters, New York Public Library
