Children's Comet Book

November 21, 1985

David Brin's book review in View, Nov. 15 ("A Little Cometary on Halley Showman") listed 10 books on Halley's comet, but omitted one that should not be overlooked: "The Comet and You" by E. C. Krupp (director of the Griffith Observatory) and illustrated by Robin Rector Krupp (Macmillan: $12.95). It is written for 6- to 10-year-olds, but will delight readers of any age.

Last month, the American Institute of Physics awarded its Science-Writing Award to Edwin C. Krupp for "The Comet and You"--the first time the award has been given for a book written for children.
