The Stardust Book Series
Each book in this series is a result of collective work of children writers, poets, scientists, editors and illustrators. In their fiction and non-fiction texts they tell children aged 6−12 about fascinating things around us. Each book has its own topic, and all materials — articles, short stories, poems, interviews, comics, riddles and even a real escape room quest — are associated with this topic.

Stardust Under the Pillow
Book about Tiny things

This is the first book of The Stardust Book Series. It tells children about everything tiny and imperceptible. We discuss atoms and pixels, microscopes and bacteria, pointillists and scale models in the cinema, small animals and the Large Hadron Collider. Poems and short stories echo the same topics – they tell about small things that can become very big and about unimportant things that become critical.

22 authors and 24 modern illustrators worked on this project.
