For thousands of years, every culture on Earth has gazed up at the heavens in wonder and found pictures hiding amongst the stars... Packaged with a free constellation talisman, Legends of the Stars will take readers on a thrilling journey of discovery, bringing the rich tapestry of myths and legends that fills the night sky dramatically to life. Eye-catching illustrations are paired with awe-inspiring photographic recreations of scenes from both classic and lesser-known myths. Learn about the Greek tale of the boastful queen Cassiopeia who was placed in the sky as a punishment for her vanity; of the three hunters in Native American myth who pursued a great bear into the heavens; and of the Japanese legend of the Tanabata.
