Overview

George's Cosmic Treasure Hunt by Stephen Hawking, Lucy Hawking, Garry Parsons

George and Annie explore the galaxy in this cosmic adventure from Stephen Hawking and Lucy Hawking, complete with essays from Professor Hawking about the latest in space travel.

George is heartbroken when he learns that his friend Annie and her father are moving to the US. Eric has a new job working for the space program, looking for signs of life in the Universe. Eric leaves George with a gift—a book called The User’s Guide to the Universe. But Annie and Eric haven’t been gone for very long when Annie believes that she is being contacted by aliens, who have a terrible warning for her. George joins her in the US to help her with her quest—and before he knows it, he, Annie, Cosmos, and Annie’s annoying cousin Emmett have been swept up in a cosmic treasure hunt, spanning the whole galaxy and beyond.

Lucy Hawking's own experiences in zero-gravity flight and interviews with astronauts at Cape Kennedy and the Johnson Space Center lend the book a sense of realism and excitement that is sure to fire up imaginations. The book includes essays written by Professor Hawking and his colleagues, in which they provide the latest thoughts on space travel.

I read a bit of it as well, but my 8 year old really read quickly through this book. He wanted to show his Dad and I all the stuff he learned and the photos. It was great to get him excited about science and space.

I purchased this and the first book, George's Secret Key to the Universe for my grandson. We read the first when he was eight, taking turns on each chapter and loved it. He is now 10 and still enjoys the story as well as the science. A great introduction to the science of space, provides positive characters of both genders. Photos from the Hubble telescope and others reinforce a fun story.
