Ada and the Galaxies

Ada knows that the best place for star-gazing is on the island in Maine where she vacations with her grandparents. By day, she tracks osprey in the trees, paddles a kayak, and hunts for shells. But she’s most in her element when the sun goes down and the stars blink to life. Will the fog this year foil her plans, or will her grandfather find a way to shine a spotlight on the vast puzzle of the universe... until the weather turns?

In his first book for children, renowned physicist Alan Lightman collaborates with author Olga Pastuchiv, illustrator Susanna Chapman, and the Hubble telescope itself to light up the night sky. Ada's love of the night sky is infectious, and her wonder at how much brighter the stars are away from her city home will ring true to young readers. By layering photographs from Hubble with charming artwork depicting a loving grandfather-granddaughter pair, this book becomes a stunning picture-book tribute to the interconnectedness of the natural world.
