It is like a Dr Who adventure, inspiring curiosity and amazement. It makes a case for the relevance and fascination of physics, and for the importance of scientists and eco-warriors working together to save the planet. With a happy circularity, the plot depends on a recent discovery: Hawking Radiation, the leaking of particles out of black holes until they destroy themselves * The Sunday Times * Gripping, informative and funny * The Bookseller * A true beginner's guide to A Brief History of Time * Publishers Weekly * A delightful book for young readers * Independent * George's Secret Key to the Universe is a novel that anyone who devoured Captain Underpants a year or two ago will appreciate * LA Times *
