  • Celebrates the life, ideas, and genius of Galileo in a picture book that achieves a brilliance of its own. An original—Starred / Booklist
  • The author's take on his exceptional subject avoids the usual, eye-glazing list of accomplishments and gives readers Galileo himself, who always had stars on his mind.—Pointer / Kirkus Reviews
  • Possesses a richness and density that are likely to enchant children and adults alike. Ultimately, Starry Messenger celebrates the power of freedom and thought, the pleasures of acute observation and the beauty of a dream held fast by one of the greatest astronomers of all time. —Elizabeth Spires, The New York Times Book Review
  • The pathos, the painstaking copies of Galileo's famous sketches of the heavens, and the attention to current scholarship make this books a fascinating find. —Starred / School Library Journal
