This is a great book for learning about space and the solar system I enjoyed it so much i finished it in a day I skipped the part about the universe ending because it sounded too scary I loved the part that tells you how astronauts go to the toilet it made me giggle a lot I am seven. Dara O Briain could write anything and I d love it I m sure.A funny, lighthearted and interesting way to explore those big questions about our planet, our universe and how the hell we re all here. This is a fantastic book for anyone interested in learning about space and the ISS.It is written for children, and narrated in a free flowing and chatty style that makes it instantly accessible for everyone I loved it. I literally read the whole book with his voice in my head very clearly his style and sense of humour Starts basic but goes VERY hardcore but explains things in as simple a way as possible I learnt plenty My son read this twice before insisting we read it together Dara O Briein s humour really comes through He has written a very engaging book I loved it and so did my son. A good refresh and update of my secondary school astronomy, told in an interesting way Extremely funny and very informativeI loved it
