Synopsis: Retells the story of Draco the dragon and Hercules, discusses the astronomical features of the constellation Draco, and describes the history of the constellation and its myths in world culture.
From Booklist: The eighth largest constellation, Draco the dragon, lies near Polaris, earth’s polestar. Exploring the area of the sky indicated by Draco, this title in the Constellations series introduces a number of astronomical concepts, such as the nature of a star, a nebula, and a galaxy. Zee retells a Greek myth involving Draco and Hercules and discusses how other cultures have interpreted the same set of stars. Directions are given for locating Draco in the night sky. The writing features short sentences with little variation, while the book’s simple, pleasing design showcases the illustrations. Drawn from many sources and varied in quality, these include reproductions of period artworks, digital pictures, and NASA images of space objects. Although the text states, Draco has 31 stars, one sky map here shows 35 stars, while another indicates 15. Recommended for larger libraries. Grades 4-6. --Carolyn Phelan
