George's Secret Key to the Universe (Paperback)

£6.99
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

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.
