A star is born, and a drama unfolds—a drama of cosmic proportions that is billions of years in the making. From the swirling clouds of dust and gas that make up stellar “nurseries,” to main sequence stars like our own Sun, to red giants, to stars that have collapsed into superdense objects no larger than Earth: Isaac Asimov explains in clear and fascinating detail the drama of stellar life.

A nice book with lots of pretty pictures aimed at younger readers, who will find this an excellent introduction to some aspects of astronomy. Adults would probably find The Universe or The Collapsing Universe more worthwhile, however.
