On clear dark nights we humans have long looked up at the stars to “connect the dots” and make cartoon pictures. These sky pictures tell stories, mark the passing of the night, the changing of seasons and show our way on Earth and through space. Enjoy ancient and modern constellations through the eyes of celebrated children’s author and star cartoonist H. A. Rey.
