This is a fun flap book packed with information about space, and the amazing things that float through it - stars, moons, comets, and the planets of our solar system. Each double-page spread has a colour illustration, and several flaps to lift to find out more about what's going on in the scene.
Winner of Royal Society Young People's Book Prize 2013.
