Pieces of Another World illustration"Pieces of Another World touched me deeply because it reminds me of the first times I took each of my boys out to look at the stars . . . It is a beautiful book to look at [and] a nice story that accurately teaches the reader what a 'shooting star' really is."

Gary Kronk, American Meteor Society
