"Jeffers masterfully captures the universe’s vastness while playfully humanizing space...The artwork puts readers in the driver’s seat. A first purchase for all collections." –School Library Journal, starred review
"The writing breaks down big concepts into relatively simple parts, while Jeffers’ imaginative artwork invites viewers to come along for the ride." –Booklist
