Reviews for The Mysteries of the Universe: Discover the best-kept secrets of space

Do judge a book by its cover; this one is as gorgeous as it looks. Not only that, it contains the full glory of the cosmos in a language that's simple and engaging enough for an eight-year-old. Although The Mysteries of the Universe is aimed at children, it really is a treat for all ages. Visually stunning, with a fabulous selection of space photos, artworks and illustrations, it is also all-encompassing in its astronomy. * BBC Sky At Night magazine *
