The noise as he turns the huge rough pages. The smell, new crisp edges. He loves the whole new experience of a new book. Our latest, I’ve had my eye on for a while. Professor Astro Cat’s Frontiers Of Space.
”Our Universe is very complicated, and many scientists spend their entire lives trying to unravel its greatest secrets – in fact, many of these secrets are yet to be uncovered. But don’t worry, Professor Astro is here to help, and I am just about the cleverest alley cat you’ll ever meet! So batten down the hatches and buckle up. It’s time to blast off and discover Professor Astro Cat’s Frontiers of Space!”.
Space is a hugely in-depth subject. The plain speaking of the text remains scientific and accurately written in a tone that makes for achievable reading for Euan. The facts blow his mind, the leading questions of the mysteries of life in the unknown excite him. His imagination triggered at the thought of what lies out there and what could be.
With ”Factoroids” that cover everything from the Universe, the Moon and the Stars to Rockets, Space Stations and the potential future of space travel… space rides in elevator’s and wormholes anyone?
”There are still many mysteries out there waiting to be solved in the great depths of space, and with each discovery will come just as many new questions. So now, my friends, this curious cat has to shoot off and see what he can find! …. Perhaps one day you’ll venture into the stars in your own spaceship and help solve the mysteries at the frontiers of space.”
I adore the colour palette used in the illustrations. Not only does it look great it’s detailed without being overwhelming this book will indefinitely grow with Euan and will serve as a great reference book in his school years.
Right now? He’s talking about how one day he’s going to space in an elevator.
