About the Book

The Ancient Greeks found patterns in the stars and told stories of the gods, heroes, adventures, and battles that lay behind these formations. This gorgeous book brings the tales of twelve key constellations to life, including Ursa Major, Andromeda, Pegasus, Orion, Scorpius, and others. Each story is concisely recounted on a page that then opens out to provide a three-page canvas for Tom Kindley’s striking graphic narrative. Luxuriantly packaged with fabric binding, gold metallic printing, and a fold-out star map, this is a spectacular book that will appeal to older children and adults alike.

About the Book

The myths behind 12 key constellations are depicted in a bold, graphic-novel style with fold out pages and star maps.
