Publisher’s Description: 

A beautifully illustrated Penguin Hardcover that invites readers to travel the night sky and discover the universe of stories in the stars

To those who can decipher it, the night sky is alive with gods and goddesses, animals and mythical creaturesan endless carnival played out in shining constellations. Amidst this jet-black canvas pricked with white dots, a hunter leaps in pursuit with his dogs at his heels, a sea monster threatens a maiden in distress, and a pair of twins lives forever.

In Stories in the Stars, writer and stargazer Susanna Hislop and international artist Hannah Waldron present an imaginative journey through the heavens. Leaping between centuries, cultures, and traditions, they explore each of the night skys eighty-eight constellations through gorgeous illustrations and vivid descriptions that will linger in readers minds long after theyve closed the book and stepped outside on a starry night.
