The Lovereading4Kids comment
September 2016 Fascinating Facts Book of the Month Astrophysicist and illustrator, both leaders in their field, here work together to give children a revealing and eye-opening tour of space. Beginning with the beginning of time itself, the Big Bang, and including topics such as dark energy, gravity and the life cycle of a star, there’s a huge amount of fascinating information in this book, presented clearly and succinctly. Dr Christopher Englert’s text is accessible, even when describing complex theories, and inspiring; Tom Clohosy Cole’s gleaming illustrations are beautiful to look at and support and expand the text. As an added bonus there’s a huge double sided poster too. ~ Andrea Reece

Destination: Space by Christoph Englert
Hop on board the space shuttle and get ready for the ride of your life as you explore deep space with your five fellow space cadets. This journey of discovery takes you through our local solar system and beyond, to galaxies far and wide. With every encounter, learn more about the science behind the stars, planets, meteors and comets in our sky, and the history of our universe.
'A fascinating and well-judged overview. Illustrated with retro-feeling, colourful spreads by Tom Clohosy Cole, this is the first in a new Destination series, which bodes well for its successors.'

'Destination: Space is the physics-made-fun title packed with facts and written by astrophysics professor Dr Christoph Englert, illustrated by Tom Clohosy Cole.'
'This book is fantastically amazingly wonderful! It is an oversize nonfiction book all about space. The illustrations are bold and beautiful with a lot of facts and information packed onto each page.'
'The book is superbly illustrated, and will have children in awe at the marvellous universe in all its beauty. A superb book for young and old.'
