When Stephen Hawking was a little boy, he used to stare up at the stars and wonder about the universe. Although he was never top of the class, his curiosity took him to the best universities in England: Oxford and Cambridge. It also led him to make one of the biggest scientific discoveries of the 20th century: Hawking radiation. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the brilliant physicist's life.

'I adore this series and the two new books about Muhammad Ali and Stephen Hawking really captured both Daniel and Emma's imagination. It resulted in lots of conversation about Ali in particular and watching some of his memorable speeches and a little of his fights.' * Let Them Be Small *
'comic-style illustrations are fresh and excellent addition to the inspiring Little People, Big Dreams series' * BookTrust *
