Product Description Billions of years ago, everything in the universe was crunched up into a tiny speck that was smaller than the period at the end of this sentence. How did this little speck become the universe we know today? Playful, alliterative verse and clear prose tell the story of the universe's journey from speck to spectacular. Bold illustrations help uncover the secrets of the cosmos. The sky will never look the same again.
