       Additional Information  
      For thousands of years, all around the world, people have seen shapes and pictures in the night sky and created stories to account for them. What one culture sees as a plow, another sees as a saucepan, another as a bear; what to one is a circle of chiefs sitting at powwow, another calls a bride's crown of flowers.

    Starry Tales brings together fifteen of these myths about the sun, the moon, and the stars from different cultures and countries. Here you can read about how night was created, about the Giant who stole the sun, and about the "saucepan" in the sky...

    One of today's most talented storytellers, Geraldine McCaughrean brings these myths to fresh life. With Sophy Williams's glowing illustrations, this is a book to enjoy, to share, and to treasure.
