Reviews

Praise for Eating the Sun

"[A] lyrical and luminous celebration of science and our consanguinity with the universe. . . . Playful and poignant." --Brain Pickings "Sanders elucidates many of the wonders of our world . . . Each inspiring snapshot feeds the curiosity of anyone interested in exploring the universe that we exist in and that exists in us." --Scientific American "With this pairing of witty illustrations and an open-weave narrative--strong on science but just this side of poetry--Ella Frances Sanders has penned a pocket-sized book vast in ambition." --Nature "Sanders beautifully personifies the universe with lyrical prose and whimsical color illustrations . . . poetic yet scientifically illuminating . . . Sanders renders [scientific] language both accessible and appealing to her audience. Even more importantly, she consistently captures a sense of awe and wonder at the universe, and ignites (or reignites) that same sense in the reader." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) "A wonder-filled excursion into the sometimes-baffling and formidable world of science. . . . Presenting information in a charming, conversational style, the author seeks to demystify science with panache. . . . A fun, accessible introduction to a variety of scientific topics that readers can explore further." --Kirkus Reviews "In this sweet and optimistic new book, author-illustrator Sanders explores the sweeping science of the universe and then breaks it down so that even right-brainers and hopeless romantics can comprehend. . . . Unique and delightful . . . Sanders's marveling is inspiring and sure to be contagious, even for the least scientifically minded of readers." --Booklist "Wondrous . . . Remarkable . . . Read[s] like poetry. . . . [Sanders's] colorful drawings, like her writing, encourage a childlike awe. This slim but lyrical exploration of the universe elicits poetry and awe out of science." --Shelf Awareness for Readers Praise for Lost in Translation "A great little book . . . lovely." --The Washington Post "Beautifully illustrated." --BuzzFeed "A fantastic collection." --Entertainment Weekly "Thoroughly fascinating." --Refinery29 "A charming little book with delightful illustrations." --San Francisco Chronicle
