In the company of Felicity, a streetwise cat who spends her night gazing up at the stars from the rooftops, you'll discover the phases of the moon, the constellation "pictures" formed by the stars, and how to spot phenomena like the Northern Lights and the Milky Way. Written by astronomy expert Stuart Atkinson and beautifully illustrated by Brendan Kearney, A Cat's Guide to the Night Sky also comes with a glow-in-the-dark poster, stickers, and a special press-out planisphere to help you find stars and constellations.
