Reviews

Though most of the images come with descriptive notes, at one point the narrative is reduced to no more than identifying labels, which encourages lingering over the visual majesty on display. In an opening section, separate enough from the rest to have its own glossary, the authors describe each of the Hubble's instruments and introduce other space telescopes. Though in essence a boiled-down version of Dickinson's more-expansive Hubble's Universe (second ed. 2017), there is more than enough here to sate young sky watchers with an appetite for jaw-dropping space photography. "To Infinity and Beyond," indeed.-- (06/16/2019)
A great addition for middle school libraries to spark interest in astronomy.--Bob Hassett"School Library Journal" (10/01/2019)
If you're hoping to kindle astronomical interest in a young person this holiday season, nothing succeeds like a collection of impressive images. Few can resist the visual splendour of the universe, but to sustain that spark, the photos need to be matched with lively, engaging and factual descriptions... Page after page is packed with stunning Hubble shots and accessible writing. Considering the book's modest price, it can serve as a nifty stocking stuffer for the curious youngster in your life-- (11/01/2019)
