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.

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 *
A terrific page-turner that will be a revelation to every young reader who has ever looked into the skies and wondered * Education Today *

“Good book, but very bad quality of pictures”

Seriously, why even publish this book with black and white pictures?

Do you think it really makes sense to have a black and white picture with a comment "... red dot in the centre ..."?
