Professor Astro Cat’s Frontiers of Space is a new book from that will tell you everything children would want to know about our planet, our Solar System, our galaxy and the Universe. Is the Moon really made of cheese? Why does the Sun shine? How do astronauts live in space? Is there life on Mars?
The clever little Professor Astro Cat explores some fun and interesting facts about the final frontier, exploring topics such as how our Universe came to be, how galaxies formed, gravity, life beyond Earth and time. The intelligent feline will take you and your children on a journey to among the stars.
Each page is very well annotated with some amusing graphics and is clearly explained throughout. Friendly characters playing the role of our professor's friends take the tour of the cosmos with the readers, providing comments throughout the book on the different topics explored and make this a fun read.
Overall, the book is clever and exciting, leaving you wanting to pick this up again and again regardless of your background in astronomy, and at just €19.00 there's no reason not to give it a try! The high-quality paper print and cover make this a very nice gift, ideal for Christmas.
