George’s Cosmic Treasure Hunt

Publisher: Corgi

Review

George's best friend Annie needs help. Her scientist father, Eric, is working on a space project - and it's all going wrong. A robot has landed on Mars, but is behaving very oddly. And now Annie has discovered something weird on her dad's super-computer. Is it a message from an alien?

This novel combination of sci-fi adventure and fact book is the creation of Stephen Hawking and his daughter Lucy. But in addition to an exciting story, and detailed scientific sections accompanied by illustrations, the Hawkings also address issues such as friendship and bullying, making this a thoughtful as well as a funny and engaging read
