We’re off to space with Dara! All aboard the laughter shuttle! A bonkers ride to space, launching now from your fave comfy chair. Stop looking down at your phone! Start looking up over your head! Yep: that’s space, and we’re going there right now with funnyman Dara Ó Briain. Seriously – why not? I mean, right here on Earth we can walk around, breathe, drink tea, eat chocolate and read books. It’s lovely! In space you can get poisoned or crushed to death just by going outside. But on Earth you can’t see flaming stars from (kind of) close up, or zoom through the Milky Way, or walk on the Moon. Right?

Synopsis

Beyond the Sky: You and the Universe by Dara O'Briain

So you want to go into space? WHY?! (No, really-it's sort of a TERRIBLE idea. We humans are perfectly designed for life on Earth. We can walk around, breathe, drink water, eat vegetables, read books, NOT get poisoned or crushed to death when we go outside-it's lovely right where we are.) Not convinced? GOOD! People have been dreaming about space travel for centuries-there's something amazing about the idea of leaving our planet behind and setting out to explore the UNIVERSE-there's so much we still don't know.

An incredible trip to space with comedian Dara Ó Briain

Travel to the edge of our universe in smart, funny style!

Full of laughs, incredible facts and two-colour cartoons

Dara hosts TV shows Robot Wars and Stargazing Live

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.
