Paper artist Lorraine Nam’s cover is fascinating. The bold color of the yellow grabs the eye and pulls you into the blue below. And inside things just continue in the same “out there” color scheme. The realism mixed with an almost fantastical element, creates some unique and thoughtful images. The fact that Tyson’s story is being told as well is just a nice bonus.
You see Tyson grow from a curious baby to the first-time space inspired him to what he is today. There is an introduction by Tyson and more information in the back of the book to help you explore on your own. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Willems and Amber Ren created a story about how things are connected because X happened Y was able to happen. These connections and events flow through out the story as you follow the yellow music image as it finally turns to green and later, blue. The illustrations are muted colors, but bold, too, and have the right pops of color where needed. The story leaves you feeling breathless! ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
