Written in the Stars leads you through the heavens above as you discover the scientific facts, legends and myths that surround the 88 constellations of the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Uncover the patterns in the stars through the richly illustrated pages of this charming book, which brings each of the constellations to life.

Magic sits in the stars. Look up and you might sense the stars slotting together like pieces of a giant galactic jigsaw puzzle. There’s no great secret to their beauty – their light is a glimpse back in time, appearing every night as shimmering, silver patterns in the darkness.
Let this book be your guide, the springboard from which you dive in to their glittering realm.
