Out of This World
Poems and Facts about Space
Illustrated by Stacey Schuett
Knopf Books for Young Readers
"Sklansky contrasts light verse about the universe with facts about outer space (which appear in sidebars) in this gentle collection, while Schuett combines homey gouache cartoons with digitally rendered intergalactic details. . . . An evocative mix of the whimsical and the scientific."
-- Publishers Weekly
"In the verse, Sklansky has a pleasing way with words and a good sense of what appeals to children. . . . Recommended for both library poetry collections and classroom astronomy units." -- Booklist
"The picture-book blend of poetry, nonfiction, and vivid extraterrestrial views is an inviting browsing item and an attractive introduction to space travel."
-- School Library Journal
"This is the kind of science I would have preferred during school!"
--Jo Ann Hakola, The Book Faerie, http://www.bkfaerie.blogspot.co
