Synopsis

Perfect for ages 8 to 80!



Adapted from A Short History of Nearly Everything, this stunningly illustrated book from Bill Bryson takes us from the Big Bang to the dawn of science, and everything in between!



Ever wondered how we got from nothing to something?

Or thought about how we can weigh the earth?

Or wanted to reach the edge of the universe?



Uncover the mysteries of time, space and life on earth in this extraordinary book - a journey from the centre of the planet, to the dawn of the dinosaurs, and everything in between.



And discover our own incredible journey, from single cell to civilisation, including the brilliant (and sometimes very bizarre) scientists who helped us find out the how and why.



The ideal book for curious young readers everywhere.
