$22.00 Sale Save

Look up at the skies in wonder with this mystically illustrated treasury of folklore from above and beyond.

Did you know that people used to read the future in the flight of birds? That the constellations were thought to be mythological beings set in the sky? And that eclipses were seen as demonic omens?

For millennia, humans have looked to the heavens to explain the world around and above them. The myths, folktales, and lore that have arisen from these wonderings are as mysterious as they are varied—here, they're set down in a beautifully illustrated and engaging format for 
readers 6-12 years old. Lore of the Stars takes readers deep into space and back through the mists of time to discover the myriad answers to our most ancient questions.

Divided into six chapters:

  • The Sky
  • The Sun
  • The Moon
  • The Stars
  • Planets, Comets, & Shooting Stars
  • The Cosmos

You will uncover the secrets of augury, the meanings of types of weather, stories explaining the birth of the Milky Way, and the beings and deities said to govern the worlds above.

Ages 6-12
Hardcover
Dimensions: 9.55 x 0.6 x 11.7 inches
