EDITOR'S REVIEW

Overall Editor's Rating

What It Is

Star Stuff: Carl Sagan and the Mysteries of the Cosmos by Stephanie Roth Sisson is a 40-page picture book that tells the true story of Carl Sagan, one of the world's most renowned scientists and space experts. It follows Carl from his days as a curious, young boy star-gazing from the bedroom window of his Brooklyn apartment to his studying to learn all he could about space to his TV show about the cosmos to his work on the Voyager missions. Thoughtful illustrations enhance the story and give it a dreamy feel unlike most science-themed stories.
