Big Book of Rockets & Spacecraft by Louie Stowell

Providing a fascinating insight into the world of space travel, this big book features a wide range of spaceships, shuttles, rockets, satellites and the International Space Station. With four huge, fold-out pages which allow children to marvel as the scale of outer space and see in detail the complexity of these marvels of science and engineering.


'Space is inspirational for children, and this book exquisitely details how we got there, how we get there now and how we might get there and explore space and our surrounding planets in more detail in the future. You owe it to yourself as a space cadet to go and pick up a copy as soon as you can!' - Read it Daddy'

She also writes retellings of myths about tricksters and other shadowy figures and stories about pirates and vampires. Louie’s also written a book about how to write books and comics about how to make comics.

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