School Library Journal - John Peters, Children's Literature Consultant, New York City

"Hunter will turn plenty of readers into enthusiastic sky watchers with these introductions to some of the heavens’ more easily observed phenomena. Leaving the brightly colored sky and space photos and /or illustrations on every page to supply the drama–which they do, in abundance–he offers particularly clear, matter-of-fact descriptions of what stars and comets are made of, what causes both solar and lunar eclipses and auroras, and, in brief, what our ancestors thought of these wonders." - School Library Journal
