The Fairy Book of Astronomy — A Lost Classic Back in Print
Katharine Fay Dewey’s only novel was forgotten by time, going out of print after only one edition was published in 1910 . . . and now her legacy has been given new life.
The traditional mythology of the zodiac constellations is well-known, but what happened after those stories were over? How do the people in the sky now interact with each other, with other beings of the heavens, and with those down on Earth?
Here, four girls illuminate the Star People’s adventures in a series of intricately woven tales of friendship, coming-of-age, and found family in the ever-shifting landscape of the celestial sphere.
This new edition contains original illustrations by Frances B. Comstock and a foreword from author and journalist D.P. Benjamin that reveals long-lost information on Katharine Fay Dewey.
Like sailors using the night sky to navigate a vast ocean, Star People and the story of its author have found their way to a new, modern readership.
