READERS LOVE UNLOCKING THE UNIVERSE:

“Despite its scientific content the essays are written in a very accessible style and the many topics investigated which range from the physical explanations of the universe to earth science to robotics and future predictions. Highly recommended for curious minds from around 10 years upwards” – Sue Warren, Blogger

“My 9 y.o. loves this book. We’ve previously discussed a lot of the concepts, but this seems to answer questions I hadn’t thought of, but my son wanted to know”
