It's one small step for birds, one giant leap for birdkind...
Blast off with the Angry Birds as they fly through space on an intergalactic rescue mission! Evil space piggies have stolen their eggs and are hiding them somewhere in outer space. To save them, the Angry Birds have teamed up with National Geographic to learn all they can about planets, moons, stars, galaxies, and the mysteries of the universe. Four chapters take the readers deeper and deeper into space—each one packed with Angry Birds, astounding space photography, and fascinating "Astrofacts" and "Space Data" features that surprise and enthrall. Join the birds as they observe robots on Mars, take a spin with the Jupiter's Great Red Spot, visit where stars are born in galaxies far, far away, and look for life on strange new worlds. This official companion book to the Angry Birds Space game shows the furious fliers everything they'll need to know on their quest to explore the galaxy and rescue their precious eggs.
The book is organized into four levels, each one taking the reader and the birds farther and farther into space:
Level One. "You Are Here: What's Out There?"
Level Two. "Short Flights: The Inner Solar System"
Level Three. "Longer Journey: The Outer Solar System"
Level Four. "Flying Farther: Deep Space"

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
it's a great book of all kinds of things related to space, presented in a very kid-friendly fashion with the angry birds. some of the distances and concepts are hard for kids younger than 10, and a pronunciation guide and expanded glossary would be great additions. however, the amazing photographs and other graphics make it really accessible even for kids who cannot read half the words. my 7 year old loves to thumb through it, looking at pictures and reading what some of the smaller factoids.
Kids love this book, love the characters and it's so much fun too!
The print is too small to read on a nook. Totally useless purchase.
I think it gives children the oppertunity to learn while having fun looking at angry bird pictures So it's really good
