Additional Notes

From The Publisher*A beautifully illustrated exploration of the principles, laws, and wonders that rule our universe, our world, and our daily lives, from the New York Times bestselling creator of Lost in Translation

Have you ever found yourself wondering what we might have in common with stars, or why the Moon never leaves us? Thinking about the precise dancing of planets, the passing of time, or the nature of natural things? 

Our world is full of unshakable mystery, and although we live in a civilization more complicated than ever, there is simplicity and reassurance to be found in knowing how and why.
 
From the New York Times bestselling creator of Lost in TranslationEating the Sun is a delicately existential, beautifully illustrated, and welcoming exploration of the universe-one that examines and marvels at the astonishing principles, laws, and phenomena that we exist alongside, that we sit within.
Review Quote*Praise for Eating the Sun

"Sanders beautifully personifies the universe with lyrical prose and whimsical color illustrations . . . poetic yet scientifically illuminating . . . Sanders renders [scientific] language both accessible and appealing to her audience. Even more importantly, she consistently captures a sense of awe and wonder at the universe, and ignites (or reignites) that same sense in the reader." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)
