    1. O curious child, have you ever wondered what goes on up there in the sky?It is easy to forget, when 21st century astronomers are mapping far-flung reaches of the universe (and we now know that our galaxy which contains billions of suns is only a tiny part of it), that less than four hundred years ago, even educated people were convinced that the earth was the centre of our solar system, and indeed of the universe itself. This utterly enchanting book for children effortlessly tells the story of h [...]

    2. It's a great book. Love the rhymes. This is a really good way of remembering science and astronomy in a painless fun fashion. The illustrations are great too. I'd say this book is for all ages. Little kids could have fun finding the mouse and the curious child on every page. Older kids would love the astronomers.I like how Tycho gets his nose chopped off. But how did he keep his brass nose on? Something to think of. Did you know he had a pet elk, who lived in his house? He drank too much beer, t [...]

    6. winner. Thank you so much. This book is small but mighty and fun. Never too early to start learning about astronomy and this book certainly fills that niche. It's a fantastic first book for an aspiring astronomer or to spark an interest in a curious child. What a great way to learn about seven great minds through a series of short poems beginning with Aristotle and ending with Johannes Kepler who explained planetary motion. The book is interesting and educational and ends with a dictionary and s [...]

    7. I bought this as a Christmas gift for one of the children I mind. He is six and asks the type of random unanswerables that six year olds ask. This book answers many of them in verse - it is informative without being didactic and teaches the child to use his noodle and work things out for himself. He loved the book but the best comment came from his 12 year old sister who read it and said 'I wish this book had benn around when I was six. I learned more from reading it than I've learned all year i [...]
