In both language and artwork, Florian strikes the perfect balance between grandeur and whimsy." - School Library Journal 7/1/07 (starred) "The poet-painter's latest book brings warm wit to the outermost reaches of cold, dark space. . . . Florian's illustrations depict the marvels of space with luminous texture and detail." - The New York Times Book Review "
