Product Description

Part of the brilliant and fun Basher Science series, Astronomyactually makes the night sky memorable once you learn about the stars and planets individually! Each cosmic item or concept is portrayed as a cute creature that's exemplified by their most prominent feature. Organized by groups (e.g. The Solar System, All-Star Crew, Deep Space Gang), each category has an introductory entry with the illustrations for that chapter assembled on one page, helping kids to see and remember which terms belong to which group.

Each creature has its own full-page illustration and entry written from a fun, casual, first-person perspective; children will learn about the planets, Halley's comet, brown dwarfs, Sirius, black holes, the Andromeda Galaxy, the Virgo Supercluster, and more. 128 pages, softcover, with glossary and index.

Please Note: this is not a Creationist resource, and therefore reference "billions of years," the big bang theory, and asteroids killing the dinosaurs.

Publisher's Description

Basher Science: Astronomy, Out of this World! created and illustrated by Simon Basher, Written by Dan Green:

Like a Facebook for the universe, Astronomy gives every important celestial body and concept its own page, where readers can learn its behaviors, likes, and dislikes up close and personal. From the flashy stars to the shadowy and strange objects that hang out like loners at the edges of the universe, no player goes unnoticed. Every profile has a hip anime-style portrait to round out the picture, but make no mistake: while the presentation is all style, the science is rock solid. The book includes a super cute poster of the solar system in the back. The universe has never been so cool.

Author Bio

Simon Basher is the creator and illustrator of The Periodic Table, Physics, and Biology.
Dan Green studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge University. Since graduating, he has written and edited many popular science titles and humorous books, become the editor of a South American national newspaper, worked as a travel writer, as well as developing and editing the wildly successful Horrible Science magazine collection. He is the "voice" of Basher's bestselling science-made-easy books, and to date has written nine titles in the series.

Editorial Reviews

Basher has created a portrait gallery of personified ... celestial bodies in a hyper-cute, pastel cartoon style reminiscent of Japanese artist Takashi Murakami's more extravagant flights. . . . Green's astro-narrative is both accurate and spiced with seldom-mentioned details, ... it could kindle (or in under motivated older readers, rekindle) interest in the topic. And it's fun!
