The story is superb, and got my children VERY excited about science. HOWEVER, it was disappointing that this version of the book printed everything in black and white, including the space pictures. I recommend buying this paperback version instead, that has colored space pictures: https://www.amazon.com/Georges-Secret-Universe-Stephen-Hawking/dp/1416985840/, the price is about the same, but you have to buy one buy one. It''s so much worthwhile because the text would refer to colored details in the space pictures.

Fun adventures that incorporate accurate science along with fantasy. All the books are interspersed with scientific data on various astronomical and physics phenomena. Make a good point about climate change as well.

My Grandson loved the first book.
He was very happy to see this gift for his birthday and has already finished the next two in the series.

"George''s Secret Key to the Universe" seems to be delivering the secret!
Reviewed in the United States on July 4, 2021
My girl is enjoying the series! She is pretty invested and talks about it with us often. The idea was to generate curiosity in science, especially Astronomy. Looks like the series has sparked that curiosity. Wish the pictures were colorful!
