This is the story of Edwin Hubble, a boy fascinated by the stars who surmounted many hurdles to follow his dreams of becoming an astronomer. Using the insights of great mathematicians and endlessly observing the sky, he succeeded in confirming two things that altered human life forever: that there are more galaxies than our own, and that the universe is always expanding. Hubble's message to us is to find peace in the vastness of the mystery surrounding us, and to be curious. "We do not know why we are born into the world," he said, "but we can try to find out what sort of world it is.

About the Author

Isabelle Marinov speaks four languages fluently, but for a reason that defies her, English is her preferred language for prose. She likes to write across genres and has always been fascinated by physics and astronomy, but since her brain wasn't wired for those, she studied law instead. The Boy Whose Head Was Filled With Stars marks Isabelle's picture book debut. You can visit her at and follow her on Instagram @isabelle.marinov.
