Follows the adventures of a young boy and his neighbor friend as they travel through a computer portal into outer space, where they explore such mysteries as black holes and the origins of the universe, while trying to evade an evil scientist.
“This book put me in mind of Judy Moody’s humor combined with Franny K. Stein’s passion for science and adventure. Supernovas, black holes, nebulas, and comets are just some of the subjects touched on throughout George’s explorations. Combined with its wonderful illustrations and vivid full color photos of our universe, this book is different from a traditional chapter book. If you generally roam the nonfiction section, you will appreciate Hawking’s focus on scientific phenomena, while fiction lovers will find George’s adventure both fun and exciting. This book also presents a positive message about the importance of taking care of our planet, and how technology should be used to better humanity rather than destroy it.”
