A beautiful picture book about the astronomer Edwin Hubble that invites children to ponder How many stars are in the sky? How did the universe begin? Where diid it come from?

This is the story of Edwin Hubble, a boy fascinated by the stars who surmounted many hurdles to follow his dreams of becoming an astronomer. Using the insights of great mathematicians and endlessly observing the sky, he succeeded in confirming two things that altered human life forever: that there are more galaxies than our own, and that the universe is always expanding. Hubble’s message to us is to find peace in the vastness of the mystery surrounding us, and to be curious. “We do now know why we are born into the world,” he said, “but we can try to find out what sort of world it is.”

When I was 9 years old, my parents gave me a red typewriter for my birthday. I began typing away, crafting stories in German and in Luxembourgish, my native language. I also published my first magazine, sold to family, friends and to a very exclusive group of international subscribers--three, to be precise. Growing up, "writer" seemed like a non-existent job description. I studied law in France and in the US and got a "proper" job. But I secretly continued to write in the evenings and on weekends. After my first son was born, I returned to my lifelong passion--writing, and for the first time, I thought about it as a job. I speak four languages fluently but for a reason that defies me, English is my preferred language for prose. I write across genres…picture books, screenplays and middle grade novels. A member of the SCBWI, I was a 2017/18 Children's Literature Fellow at Stony Brook University in Southampton, NY. I am a graduate of Cornell Law School and I live in Luxembourg, Europe with my husband, two sons and a cat.
