It's one giant leap for all boy-kind in Frank Cottrell Boyce's out-of-this-world story: Cosmic.

Liam is too big for his boots. And his football strip. And his school blazer. But being super-sized height-wise has its advantages: he's the only eleven-year-old to ever ride the G-force-defying Cosmic rollercoaster - or to be offered the chance to drive a Porsche. Long-legged Liam makes a giant leap for boy-kind by competing with a group of adults for the chance to go into space. Is Liam the best boy for the job? Sometimes being big isn't all about being a grown-up.

This edition of Cosmic includes bonus material and discussion questions from Frank Cottrell Boyce, and illustrations by Steven Lenton.

This book is great.
It's great to read aloud to one or more children.
It's based roughly on the story of apollo 13.
And I loved it.
