This book will change the way you look at the night sky. Instead of just looking up and seeing a random scattering of stars, you will look up and see familiar old friends who rise and fall every year right on schedule. Even in city lights you will be able to pick out the brighter constellations. Leo, Virgo, Gemini, and all the other stars of the zodiac, which were only known by the horo- scopes in the daily paper, will take on new meaning as the flight path for the planets. Trips to the southern latitudes will be seen as an opprotunity to see new stars not visible from home, and trips out into the country will become opprotunities to try and spot some of the dimmer constellations.
And best of all, it's very easy. H.A.Rey has taken the old confusing star charts, and reconnected the lines. Now Leo the Lion now actually looks like a lion! And Gemini the Twins, actually looks like a pair of twins! It is a wonderful book for everyone from ages eight to adult. And for those young- er, Rey has put out an equally wonderful children's version called "Find the Constellations."
If you've ever had a child who has looked up at the night sky and asked you, "Daddy, what star is that?" and you didn't know, you need this book.

Picture this... City boy goes to the country for the weekend and, Lo! there are stars where he is used to seeing the glare of the city. Upon musing about which glowing blob was what, his host produces a battered (from much use) edition of H.A.Rey's 'The Stars - A New Way To See Them' and, despite some amusement that the author of the 'Curious George' children's books had penned a star guide, within ten minutes he knew more about the heavens than he had ever thought possible and was pointing out Cassiopeia (easily identified by lining up 'the Pointers' of the Big Dipper to locate the Pole Star and from there, a bit to the right, to the 'W' of Cassiopeia) to his children with the authority of an expert! This book explains in the most simple and understandable terms (Rey was, after all, a children's author and used to parsing information in an easily digestible format) how to look at stars and their constellations, how to recognise them in a simplified, pictorial way, and! how to guage which is which from their brightness. This is the book that I have been seeking for years to demystify the complexities of astronomy so as to make the simple recognition of the stars an enjoyable and non-scientific exercise. Something that other books I've tried seem to make into a complex, and therefore frustrating, pursuit. It is totally fabulous, quite aside from being a fun and informative read. Everyone should be able to recognise at least some of the stars that cicumnavigate the heavens above us, and this book lets them do just that without feeling the need for an astronomy degree.

H. A. Rey is best known for his "Curious George" stories, but he was a scientist by profession and he also wrote two books on stargazing for children. If you have a child who is interested in the stars, this book is delightful and highly readable. And if YOU are interested in the stars, dont hesitate to get it for yourself! Rey has a unique way of showing the constellations: he actually went through the trouble of drawing lines between the stars of a constellation to form a meaningful picture - so Gemini (the twins) actually looks like a pair of twins, Cetus (the whale) looks like a whale, and so forth. A word of warning: to form these pictures, Rey often had to rely on dim stars. Don't expect to see them from the city! Access to a dark country sky is essential to get the most out of this book. That said, "The Stars" makes the mastery of stargazing accessible and fun for children and adults alike.

Von Ein Kunde am 8. Februar 1998
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the all-time classic for learning the constellations. My father gave me this book when I was about 10, and I've owned a copy ever since. Now, my own sons are learning their way around the night sky with it. Absolutely the clearest, most easily recognized representations of the star patterns I've ever seen. Even "Sky and Telescope" magazine has recently changed its "All Sky" maps to use most of these drawings, rather than more complicated traditional ones. (The most notable exception is Ursa Major, The Great Bear, but I prefer Rey's illustration; it looks more like a bear!) One ommission in this catalog listing is the edition and date. The planetary tables are only valid for about a 10-year span, and the publisher revises them accordingly. I can only hope that "Amazon.com" is shipping the latest.

I was given the hardbound version as a gift from my father's business contact in the early 1960s. For years it sat on my shelf, too advanced for me. Then, as a young teen, I picked it off the shelf, curious about it, and read it cover to cover. What a delight to discover that this book was by the same creator as "Curious George"! His artwork is clear and kid-friendly! By slightly redrawing the connecting lines between stars, H.A.Rey makes the constellations LOOK like the objects they are named after. Each edition contains a ten year table of locations for spotting the planets among the zodiac. Be sure to buy an edition that has a table valid for the coming decade for your child or adult to fully utilize in the years to come. -A superior volume. I can't say enough about this book!
