Before he became a world reknowned astrophysicist, Dr. Carl Sagan was simply an awestruck little boy enthralled with the cosmos. The perfect picture book for inquisitive kids who are already asking the "big questions"!

Additional Notes

From The Publisher*For every child who has ever looked up at the stars and asked, What are they?" comes the story of a curious boy who never stopped wondering: Carl Sagan. When Carl Sagan was a young boy he went to the 1939 World's Fair and his life was changed forever. From that day on he never stopped marveling at the universe and seeking to understand it better. Star Stuff follows Carl from his days star gazing from the bedroom window of his Brooklyn apartment, through his love of speculative science fiction novels, to his work as an internationally renowned scientist who worked on the Voyager missions exploring the farthest reaches of space. This book introduces the beloved man who brought the mystery of the cosmos into homes across America to a new generation of dreamers and star gazers. "
