Book summary

Virginia's famous father, Galileo, sleeps during the day and studies the sky at night. While he is sleeping, Virginia discovers a box on his desk with five objects inside - four pieces of glass and a feather - that reveal the world to her in new and wonderful ways.

Using the rich colors and lush textures of the Renaissance, Catherine Brighton recreates Galileo's world. This child's-eye-view gives young readers an enchanting introduction to the accomplishments of Galileo, and delightfully celebrates the magic of science.

An introduction by Dava Sobel, author of the best-selling adult book Galileo's Daughter, further illuminates the life experience of Galileo's daughter, Virginia.
