Brief History of Time, and his daughter Lucy explain the universe
to readers of all ages. George's parents, who have always been wary of
technology, warn him about their new neighbors: Eric is a scientist and
his daughter, Annie, seems to be following in his footsteps. But when
George befriends them and Cosmos, their super-computer, he finds himself
on a wildly fun adventure, while learning about physics, time, and the
universe. With Cosmos's help, he can travel to other planets and a black
hole. But what would happen if the wrong people got their hands on
Cosmos? George, Annie, and Eric aren't about to find out, and what ensues
is a funny adventure that clearly explains the mysteries of science.
Garry Parsons' energetic illustrations add humor and interest, and his
scientific drawings add clarity; there are also eight 4-page full-color
inserts of scientific photos.
