Publisher's Synopsis

Shimmering poetry and stunning cut-paper art portray epic concepts - the evolving biography of the universe and the symbiotic relationship between science and story.

Birds sing. Bees dance. Wolves howl. But we are the ones who tell stories.

Since the beginning, humans have created stories about the universe. From early mythology to modern-day science, we have always been curious to know more, yet 95 percent of the world "out there" remains a mystery. What will we believe tomorrow?

Marion Dane Bauer's glowing poetry combines with Hari & Deepti's luminously intricate cut-paper illustrations, to celebrate our long and ever-changing journey to understand the universe. In a comprehensive afterword, the author charts formative contributions to the study of the universe by Western and non-Western civilizations over the centuries.
