What the Judges thought "A fantastically interactive book for younger children. Full of flaps to lift (and flaps under flaps) that reveal amazing facts about space!”

And some comments from the children involved in the judging...
"We really, really liked all of the flaps in this book. There was so much to look at on each page." Servite RC Primary School

"Great for young scientists.  Loads of great bitesize facts about our Solar System - and beyond!" Stafford Grammer School

The Royal Society Young People's Book Prize winner is selected by groups of young people in judging panels across the UK.  Over 1000 young people from over 100 panels took part to select the 2013 winner, Look Inside Space.


Space Synopsis

This is a great fun flap book packed with interesting information about space, and the amazing things that float through it - stars, moons, comets, and the planets of our solar system. Each double-page spread has a stunning colour illustration, and several flaps to lift to find out more about what's going on in the scene - such as what goes inside the International Space Station, how astronauts visited the Moon and what they did there, as well as the history of astronomy, from Galileo to the Hubble Space Telescope.

You can watch the film celebrating the six short listed books, as reviewed by some of the young people who made up the judging panels across the UK.

About Rob Lloyd Jones

Rob Lloyd Jones never wanted to be a writer when he grew up. He wanted to be a fireman. Or a polar explorer. Or a deep-sea diver. And sometimes a pirate too. But, when it came down to it, he didn’t much like fire, or ice, or sharks, or even swords. So he decided to write about them instead. Since then, he’s written several books on subjects ranging from animals at war to the history of Islam. He loves it. But he still dreams about being a fireman.
