    The illustrations are lovely, and the author conveys biographical and scientific information clearly and smoothly, at a level that children can understand.

    So much impressive detail in the pen, ink, and watercolor illustrations in this book and very appropriate for the biography of Edwin Hubble, whose unwavering focus on the stars and sky led to great discoveries. Edwin's story, along with the text's repeated refrain, "How many stars are in the sky? How did the universe begin? Where did it come from?" will encourage curious minds to keep exploring and reaching for the stars.

    Great pictures accompany this informative book about Edwin Hubble (whom I discovered did not help create the Hubble telescope, it was named after him).Anything you did not like about the book? Some pages had silver writing that was on theme (stars) but hard to read, I had to tilt the book to get the light right. It was a little too informative for my six year old, but my nine year old budding astronaut lliked it.
