September Books 5) George's Secret Key to the Universe, by Lucy & Stephen Hawking

A genially educational novel for kids; George's parents are anti-technology environmentalists, but luckily the girl next door has a magic computer, and together with her scientist father they manage to foil the fiendish plan of the evil school science teacher in alliance with the class bullies. Lots of text boxes explaining about planets and stars. Credits also go to Christophe Galfard, who gets a 'with' on the title page but I note has gone on to write novels in his own name, and Garry Parsons for excellent illustrations on every page.
