If you want to sell science, having some hip retro illustration and some cute characters probably helps. That’s certainly what you get with Professor Astro Cat’s Frontiers Of Space by Dr. Dominic Walliman and Ben Newman, which is published by Flying Eye Books.
It looks like something out of the 1960s – and perhaps that’s the point. We were sold on the cover before we even considered the content! That’s down to Dr. Dominic Walliman, who has teamed up with illustrator Ben Newman to tell your children everything they need to know about our planet, our solar system, our galaxy and the universe. Dr. Astro explores topics such as gravity, extraterrestrial life and time with fun facts and interesting insights, aided by an easy writing style and some lovely imagery.
The book is aimed at ages seven through to 11, but you suspect a few adults will get pleasure from this too. If you want it, you can find out more and order via the publisher’s site or you can pick it up from the Amazon.co.uk too just a bit cheaper.
