Reviews

"*Beginning with the first page, Sisson introduces the magnitude of the universe, visually presenting the Milky Way and our sun's place in it." --The Horn Book, STARRED REVIEW

"Carl Sagan is best known for being a renowned expert on the cosmos, but he started out as just a curious kid fascinated with the night sky, and that's where Sisson starts this picture-book biography." --Booklist

"*Sisson's economical narrative and lighthearted illustrations convey Sagan's regard for the power of imagination and his generous approach to knowledge . . . Both friendly and inspiring." --KIRKUS, STARRED REVIEW

"*Told in narrative format, this beautifully designed and illustrated picture book gives readers a glimpse into the childhood wonderings Sagan experienced as he looked at the night sky and imagined possibilities . . . A gorgeous, informative offering for biography and science collections." --School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW

"*A broader message about the role wonder plays in innovation resonates throughout this story." --Publishers Weekly
