For budding astronomers and space enthusiasts this is the ultimate guide. Spectacular and state-of-the-art, this is the ultimate guide to the known universe. It is packed with dazzling images and unbelievable statistics including maps from our Solar System to the outer edges of space, constellation charts, cross-sections of asteroids and meteorites, images that capture exploding supernovas and distant galaxies. This book contains everything you need to know to navigate the night sky and to know all there is to know about the furthest reaches of the cosmos. It comes complete with a fold out poster of the universe and a CD, from which you’ll be able to print out lots of images found in the book.

There is also a Children’s Encyclopedia of Earth in the same Templar ‘Insiders’ series and a Children’s Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs

About the Author

Mark A. Garlick

Mark Garlick on Mark Garlick:

I am a freelance illustrator and author, specialising in earth sciences, technology, astronomy and space.

I have a degree in astronomy from University College London (UCL), and a PhD in astrophysics from the Mullard Space Science Laboratory. After I finished my PhD, I did three years of research at Sussex University, specialising in close binary stars called cataclysmic binaries. But by the time I reached the end of my contract, it had become clear that professional astronomy was not for me, and I decided on a career change.

Now, self trained in illustration, I run a company called Mark Garlick Words and Pictures Ltd. Since 1996 I have written and illustrated five of my own books, and my images have appeared in their hundreds in other books, publications and in advertising. I welcome your commissions.

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!

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 THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
