George's pet pig breaks through the fence into the garden next door - introducing him to his new neighbours: the scientist, Eric, his daughter, Annie, and a super-intelligent computer called Cosmos. And from that moment George's life will never be the same again, for Cosmos can open a portal to any point in outer space . . . Written by science educator Lucy Hawking and her father - the most famous scientist in the world - and illustrated by Garry Parsons, George's Secret Key to the Universe will take you on a rollercoaster ride through space to discover the mysteries of our universe.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"It is like a Dr Who adventure, inspiring curiosity and amazement. It makes a case for the relevance and fascination of physics, and for the importance of scientists and eco-warriors working together to save the planet. With a happy circularity, the plot depends on a recent discovery: Hawking Radiation, the leaking of particles out of black holes until they destroy themselves" * The Sunday Times *
"Gripping, informative and funny" * The Bookseller *
"A true beginner's guide to A Brief History of Time" * Publishers Weekly *
"A delightful book for young readers" * Independent *
"George's Secret Key to the Universe is a novel that anyone who devoured Captain Underpants a year or two ago will appreciate" * LA Times *
