For every child who has ever looked up at the stars and asked, "What are they?" comes the story of a curious boy who never stopped wondering: Carl Sagan.

When Carl Sagan was a young boy he went to the 1939 World's Fair and his life was changed forever. From that day on he never stopped marveling at the universe and seeking to understand it better. Star Stuff follows Carl from his days star gazing from the bedroom window of his Brooklyn apartment, through his love of speculative science fiction novels, to his work as an internationally renowned scientist who worked on the Voyager missions exploring the farthest reaches of space. This book introduces the beloved man who brought the mystery of the cosmos into homes across America to a new generation of dreamers and star gazers.

From the Author:

When I was a kid, science was a dull subject to me. It seemed distant and unrelatable . Then, in 1980, something happened that changed how I thought about science: Carl Sagan's Cosmos: A Personal Voyage aired on TV.  Cosmos changed everything- Carl Sagan was able to ignite imagination and wonder and pull science out of the the antiseptic staleness it existed in in my classroom and make it relevant to me and millions of people around the globe.  In Cosmos, Carl Sagan explained that the stars in the night sky are related to us- that we too are made of the same stuff- star stuff.  Carl Sagan forever change the way that I experience the world.  I think of  STAR STUFF: Carl Sagan and the Mysteries of the Cosmos,  as an introduction to the life of this great man and as a thank you from a grateful kid.

About the Author:

Stephanie Roth Sisson is an artist who has illustrated many books for children, most recently the Princess Posey chapter book series. Star Stuff is the first picture book that she has both written and illustrated. She lives in California and Mauritius.
