Press Reviews

“See inside the Universe” takes us on a whistle-stop tour of the universe, from stars and galaxies to the Big Bang and the Big Crunch, via astronomy and particle physics. It’s so dense – there are flaps hidden within flaps – that it’s one of those books kids and parents can dip into time and again.
Dr. Amber Jenkins
Good introduction to the solar system, offering information in bite-sized chunks.
The Telegraph
The ‘science’ of gravity, the Big Bang, atoms – all presented with over 70 flaps to lift, this will be a great recommendation for the boffins of the future.
Jill Pattle, Far From the Madding Crown Bookshop

My five year old is very interested in facts and loves this book. Since having it we have gone on to buy several more of the series, all of which he finds really interesting and asks for over and over again. His other particular favourite is 'See under the Sea'.
