Star Stuff by Stephanie Roth Sisson

Star Stuff: Carl Sagan and the Mysteries of the Cosmos
by Stephanie Roth Sisson [j Biography Sagan]

This picture book is an absolutely charming biography of astronomer Carl Sagan, the man who brought the original Cosmos science mini-series to television back in 1980. Told in simple phrases and illustrations that are both simplistic and yet hauntingly accurate representations of the young Sagan, this book perfectly captures what it must have been like for an inquisitive dreamer like Sagan to be inspired by the study of the unknown. Sagan did so much to popularize the studies in various fields of science for two generations of young people -- it's marvelous to see his own journey of study and exploration captured in this unique and engaging youth biography. -- recommended by Scott C. - Bennett Martin Public Library [ see Scott's Reviewer Profile and more of his reviews ]
