Book 421

Starry Messenger, by Peter Sis, Frances Foster Books, 1996.

First of all, this book is gorgeous.  Amazingly and staggeringly and phenomenally gorgeous. 

The story itself is a great introduction to the history of astronomy for early grade school children.  There is not a happy ending, because Galileo's story did not have a happy ending, but I like honesty in children's literature. 

Overall, I thought this book was VERY well done.  I was not surprised to see Frances Foster's name associated with it.
