Night Sky Watcher by Raman Prinja (QED Publishing)

Night Sky Watcher

Written and Illustrated by
Raman Prinja

Published by QED Publishing

QED produce some of our favourite non-fiction titles, and we've been lucky enough to have received a copy of their rather innovative star-spotting book. At first glance "Night Sky Watcher" by Raman Prinja doesn't even look like a book at all, clad in a funky weatherproof plastic cover, with a zip around it to protect it from the elements. But open it up, and on a clear night you'll soon be spotting constellations, stars and planets with the help of the extremely approachable and kid-friendly content.

Space is cool, and this is an excellent addition to the amazing non-fiction books we've seen about space and star spotting.

This book, a clear sky, a frosty hilltop and a flask of warm cocoa = BLISS!

Charlotte's best bit: Spotting Orion thanks to the book's help

Daddy's Favourite bit: An innovative idea for a book that just BEGS to be taken out for night-time strolls!
