ALA Booklist
*Starred Review* Like a young star maturing into a red giant, the True Book: Space series shines brighter the older it gets. The glossy covers and dazzling photos that have become True Book hallmarks are especially well matched with the breathtaking panoramas of outer space, and the text emerges victorious against difficult concepts. Stars is simply gorgeous. The ghostly veils of the Cat's Eye Nebula, the ominous gas pillars of the Eagle Nebula, the coral-reef depths of the Crab Nebula e only complaint will be that the photos aren't bigger. The diagrams (including the cradle-to-grave "A Star's Life") are remarkably educational. Short but solid back matter closes out these impressive offerings.
