Excerpt from The Stars and Their Mysteries: An Interestingly Written Account of the Wonders of Astronomy, Told in Simple Language His volume is one of the Science for T Children series, each volume of which is complete in itself. The author has endeavoured to treat the subject of Astronomy in a realistic fashion. Instead of merely relating what has been discovered about the Moon and the Planets, we make an imaginary trip in a wonder ful flying machine, and see for ourselves what these heavenly bodies are like. Of course the sights which we see are the realities. At other times we make simple experiments which ex plain to us the behaviour of the Sun and the Moon. The whole subject is treated in the easy-going, yet accurate, style already found acceptable in The Great Ball on which we live and Our Good Slave Electricity.
