About the Author

Dom Conlon is a double Carnegie-nominated poet and author whose work is guided by nature and the stars. He's written poetry and picture books, fact and fiction — sometimes all in the same book. Dom hopes to inspire everyone to read and write poetry. Anastasia Izlesou is a multidisciplinary illustrator and designer from the UK. Using a mix of digital and traditional media, she creates vibrant works full of bold natural elements. Her inspirations range from natural sciences, literature and folklore to everyday items and objects of kitsch.


"Shine, Star, Shine! is a book that will help explain some of the mystery of stars, using our closest star, the sun, as its principal character. [...] Author Dom Conlon is a poet with a background in advertising, and he's used this experience well to select and write about starry facts in an unusual and expressive way. The lilting narrative is complemented with beautiful pictures by illustrator and graphic designer Anastasia Izlesou. Shine, Star, Shine! is a great STEM-themed book to add to home libraries, and to use in classrooms."
*Kids' Book Review*

"There have been many books in library collections that have the sun as their focus for information, but few would be as poetic as this one. while still having so much information packed into it , including some facts that explain the use of some of Conlon’s terminology such as “planet-turner” because of the Sun’s gravitational pull on the planets of the solar system."
*The Bottom Shelf*

"This short, richly illustrated book provides a lyrical and imaginative introduction to the beginning of our solar system and the birth of our own star, the Sun. We journey with the Sun to see how she affects our world, the changing seasons, and providing the energy and warmth to help us grow the food we need."
