Synopsis (from the book cover):

How many days are there between full moons – think you know?  Is there an ancient key to the calendar hidden in the stone circles?  What is the magical secret of the Sun-Moon-Earth system?

If you have ever wondered about eclipses,  tides or the seasons, this amazing little book by acknowledged time-lord Robin Heath will quickly introduce you to the astonishing beauty of the primary cycles around this planet.  Advanced wizarding at its best!


This book may be tiny but it is perfectly formed, giving a detailed overview of the subject. The pages in the book are crammed full of interesting facts and information, although you may need to don your specs so that you do not miss some of the tiny script that hides in and around the book’s illustrations.

The book left me wanting to do further (more detailed) reading and research on the subject.

    This sounds like a great book for me too Cherie… i spent most of the time following the seasons with my calendar of trees across the lake… and i catch all of the faces of the moon through my windows… and when we get back home i will watch them from my deck outside….peter:)

    it was great meeting you on Sunday… it’s time for you to change your thumbnail picture… you look a lot younger in person:-)

      I too enjoy watching the sun and the moon over ‘my oak’ and how it is in different places in different seasons.

      It was lovely to meet you and Penny too :-) I wish we all had more time together.

      You are so sweet, I will see what I can do about my profile piccie ;-)

  2. “What is the magical secret of the Sun-Moon-Earth system?”

    Oops, sounds like it may not be a secret any more.

    “acknowledged time-lord Robin Heath”

    Ah… I think I would have known if that were true, although I suppose it just needs one person to acknowledge it for it to be true, so perhaps not.

    Nice cover.

      I think you would enjoy the book. It is all about maths, measurements and astronomy. Curious facts that not everyone knows!

    I have that book, but an earlier edition (1999) The newer editions of Wooden Books have been restyled with much smaller typefaces which I find difficult to read. (My tired old eyes y’know)
    Anyway, a fascinating book: our megalithic ancestors were a lot cleverer than our modern scientists who, after all, know everything; allegedly :)

      I had to get a magnifying glass out to read parts of it… Hence my comment you may need to don your specs.

      Our megalithic ancestors knew the true measurements that construct our world. Unfortunately some fool decided metric was easier to understand as a measure and that took us away from understanding ‘the whole’ and how things work ;-)

    I know from personal reading that these little books in this series are really good – my son has a whole selection of them, and it is amazing how much information can be included in such a small book. I was so pleased to see you again last Sunday, and to meet Mark, the gentleman whom I have sometimes caught sight of in your writings.

    • CherryPie says:

      It is amazing how much information is crammed into such a tiny book.

      I was lovely to see you again too, I wish we could have spent a little bit more time together.

    Hi Cherie, Thanks for sharing the info about the book. I am sure it is fascinating reading, and I can understand why you would want to do more research on the subjects. As they say “the more we know, the more we know we don’t know”, or something like that!!

  6. Did Heath mention about werewolves and full moon in his book?

  7. I stumbled upon your blog and read your review, and just now ordered the book!
