Description

From planets and asteroids to black holes and galaxies, every page will captivate young readers as they journey through the vastness of the Universe.

Each celestial body is shown both photographically and illustrated, and children will love poring over the detailed close-up images.

Engaging storybook-style descriptions of each object allow readers to delve into facts, myths, trivia, and key discoveries about the Solar System and beyond. Wonder at the rocky rings around Saturn, gaze at the fountains gushing from Jupiter's moon Enceladus, and marvel at mysterious interstellar visitors 'Oumuamua and Borisov. With reference pages packed with fascinating information, you'll go away knowing something you didn't before, and you'll return time and again.

An attractive gift for children who can't get enough of astronomy, The Mysteries of the Universe is perfect for kids to explore by themselves or for bedtime stories.

Critic Reviews

“Do judge a book by its cover; this one is as gorgeous as it looks. Not only that, it contains the full glory of the cosmos in a language that's simple and engaging enough for an eight-year-old. Although The Mysteries of the Universe is aimed at children, it really is a treat for all ages. Visually stunning, with a fabulous selection of space photos, artworks and illustrations, it is also all-encompassing in its astronomy.”
