George's Secret Key to the Universe: George's Secret Key to the Universe - Book 1

by Lucy and Stephen Hawking - £6.99  Random House Children (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780552559584 | ISBN 10: 055255958x

Take a rollercoaster ride through the vastness of space and, in the midst of an exciting adventure, discover the mysteries of physics, science and the universe with George, his new friends next door the scientist Eric and his daughter, Annie and a super-intelligent computer called Cosmos, which can take them to the edge of a black hole and back again. Or can it? And who else would like to get their hands on Cosmos?

A fascinating mix of fiction and facts, suitable for 8-12 year olds. Written by Professor Stephen Hawking - world expert in theoretical physics - and his daughter Lucy. George's Secret Key to the Universe incorporates blocks of text packed with detailed information about the solar system, particles, neutron stars and more, as well as 32 real colour photographs and computer-generated images of the solar system, including some from the Mars exploration in 2005.

A funny and hugely informative romp through space, time and the universe!

And look out for a new story by the Hawkings - George's Cosmic Treasure Hunt - in April 2009...
