Counter
Stephen Hawking, author of the multi-million copy bestselling A

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.
