Editorial Reviews

This celestial children's book tells the story of a greedy king who steals all the stars from the night sky-and the brave princess who sets out to put them back. It's a stargazing primer for young readers that riffs on the Greek mythology behind some of the constellations. The subject isn't a stretch for Jackson, who studied physics at the University of Houston before earning her Master of Science degree in teaching at Rice and has long dreamed of becoming an astronaut. She's also the founder and director of Starry Sky Austin, where she teaches hands-on astronomy classes to students of all ages.
