Betts’ Illustrations Teach Children About the Night Sky

[ Posted: May 18, 2022 ]


Anni Betts is back with yet another adorable children’s book for which she made all of the illustrations! The book, titled “The Squirrel That Watched the Stars!” and written by Tom Kerss, is about a little squirrel who lives in an oak tree in Greenwich Park, London. One night, as the squirrel is watching the old observatory nearby and wonders about the stars above, he is visited by Cygnus, the famous swan constellation, who teaches him about her world of stars.

“This book really works well on two levels”, says Anni, “First, it’s written all in verse, and the soothing rhythm of it paired with the nighttime subject make it the perfect bedtime story for kids. It also teaches some core concepts about the stars and our universe at a level that young future astronomers can appreciate.”

Aside from the adorable story, the book also features a star chart in the back end of the book, telling readers how to find Cygnus in the night sky, as well as a Star School page with more detailed info about the concepts covered in the story.
