Paula Green reviews The Sun Is a Star


Paula Green reviews The Sun Is a Star for NZ Poetry Box:

Dick Frizzell’s The Sun Is a Star is a dazzling book, which is just what you want in a book that explores the sun. Think dazzle, think gleam, think word beams. Dick got the idea for the book when his granddaughter Coco ran inside to ask him if he knew the sun was a star. She is grownup now, so he has germinated the idea for a long time. Rather than do all the artwork and writing himself, he drew in a crowd of helpers from friends and family. Samantha Lord has several degrees, including one in Science Communication, has worked as an astronomy guide at lake Tekapo, and is now back home working at the Jodrell Bank Observatory in England. She helped Dick discover new star facts and possibilities, and to communicate tricky information.’
