Description
The author and illustrator of Zoo in the Sky and Once Upon a Starry Night here introduce the zodiac in an astronomical context, identifying the constellations and their stars in the night sky and discussing the mythical traditions and historical observations in which the astrological signs are rooted.

"While there is a heavier emphasis on culture and legend, readers will glean some notable scientific factoids, for example that Scorpius has as its centerpiece a flaming, ruby-colored star. This supergiant is 300 times bigger than the Sun. Supplemental text and pertinent charts are included. Striking jewel-toned, classically inspired illustrations highlighted by metallic stars complement the text. This attractive survey of the symbols of the zodiac should serve as an appealing starting point for budding astronomers and astrologers."School Library Journal
