From the Back Cover
Fancy Nancy thinks that everything in the sky is simply stellar, from the sun and the moon to the stars and their constellations (that's a fancy word for the shapes that stars make!). So nothing could make her happier than a special sleepover under the stars with her dad and her little sister, JoJo. Together Nancy and JoJo wish on stars, moon bathe, and even eat astronaut ice cream! But when rain clouds cover up the stars, what's a stellar stargazer to do?
Bestselling author and illustrator of the Fancy Nancy books Jane O'Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser fill Fancy Nancy: Stellar Stargazer! with celestial facts and sparkling illustrations. Best of all, take the glow-in-the-dark cover outside at night to launch your own fancy stargazing adventure. Ready? Three . . . two . . . one . . . Blastoff!--This text refers to the hardcover edition.

My only minor complaint is that they state very concretely that there are no aliens (which seems like an out of place comment since they are just talking about the moon and stars in this book). I think this is very open to debate, it seems odd that they say this in here like it's a fact. I'm just saying, the universe is a huge place, the probability of lifeforms elsewhere in it is pretty high. Anyway, when I read this book I add "on the moon" when I read that "there aren't any aliens"--that's much more accurate and has actually been scientifically proven.
The book also shows Nancy and Jo Jo playing together a lot--it's nice seeing a kids book with siblings getting along, rather than just arguing all the time for low-brow comedic effect.
Finally, the cover glows in the dark! Yes, this actually was a big selling point, kids love things that glow in the dark.
The book does a good job of teaching (in a fun way) a lot of cool stuff about the stars and moon etc.
A decent library checkout. Not bookshelf worthy.
Also, the glow in the dark is only on the outside paper, not the actual book cover.
