In this book, I wanted a work about animals, names of the constellations of the Southern Hemisphere, where I live. Since I was a child, my father has taught me to love the stars and guide me through the constellations, so I always locate my place in this world. I always observe these heavenly fields in the certainty that there is something beyond, much greater than our little dreams.
