Mitton, Jacqueline. Zoo in the Sky: A Book of Animal Constellations. Illustrated by Christina Balit. National Geographic, 1998. ISBN 0-7922-7069-X. $16.95. Unpaginated. A Pre+ NF Reviewed by Vicky M. Turner Since the dawn of man, people have been watching the night skies and telling themselves stories of the star pictures they find there. The Great Bear, Swan, Fox, Scorpion, Wolf, Leo the Lion, Twins, Bull, Great Dog, Hare, Goldfish, Flying Fish, Whale, Peacock, Bird of Paradise, Toucan, Crane, Dragon all these constellations are identified and their stories briefly told. The illustrations are highlighted with glowing, iridescent stars, placed exactly as the stars in the heavens, while the background illustration shows the animal. This is the most appropriate use of the technique first seen in Rainbow Fish that I have seen.
