The Lovereading4Kids comment

World famous scientist Stephen Hawking and his daughter Lucy have created a third amazing adventure cleverly blended with real science. A trip to the world famous Large Hadron Collider gives George and his friend Annie the chance to find out about the Big Bang, the very first moments of the earth’s creation at first hand. But there’s a plot to interfere with science and soon George and Annie are off to a far away galaxy and a trip into the quantum world. The latest theories of time travel and the Big Bang are all included in this great adventure which is brought vividly to life in the full colour photos of real images from space.

And a message from the Publisher:

"In this gripping page-turner, the third in a series, George and Annie are whisked into a thrilling adventure as they race to stop a fiendish plot that threatens to wipe out a big experiment about the Big Bang: the moment our Universe was created. It's full of cliffhanger moments with fun black-and white illustrations, and alongside the adventure, young science fans will find lots of extra factual information and full-colour space photo inserts. I know of no other adventure story set against a background of today's latest science and as Professor Stephen Hawking is an acknowledged science genius, you can totally trust the realism of the science in the story. It's the kind of book you read more than once - once for the adventure and then once again to look again at the factual bits, which should make it a perfect book for a library - and we really hope it will help inspire our young scientists of the future. Go on, pick up a copy - I promise you will be entertained but will also learn lots at the same time."
