About the Author:

Nick Hunter has written many non-fiction books for children. He has a degree in Modern History and specializes in writing about history and social studies.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-4-Hunter will turn plenty of readers into enthusiastic sky watchers with these introductions to some of the heavens' more easily observed phenomena. Leaving the brightly colored sky and space photos and /or illustrations on every page to supply the drama-which they do, in abundance-he offers particularly clear, matter-of-fact descriptions of what stars and comets are made of, what causes both solar and lunar eclipses and auroras, and, in brief, what our ancestors thought of these wonders. Each volume closes with a doable, relevant enrichment activity and a modest handful of leads to further information. α(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal.
