My eight-year-old daughter, Janelle, is an avid reader of children's fiction, particularly when it's about fairies or the likes of boy wizard Harry Potter. Straight science, she sometimes complains, is too technical or tedious. So it was with delight that I found her eagerly devouring, in only three, admittedly extended, sittings, my copy of a 296-page novel packed with scientific facts and figures. The amusing, entertaining and edifying book combines the respective talents of the Hawkings. Father Stephen, the legendary Cambridge University physicist, assisted by former doctoral student Christophe Galfard, concentrates on the science while daughter Lucy, a journalist and writer, and mother of one son, explores themes with instant child appeal. For example, the book's hero, young George, disobeys his parents by entering the property next door, he contends with a bossy school teacher, Dr G. Reeper, and is pursued by the class bully and his thuggish companions. He also gets to meet Annie, the girl next door with long, tangled blonde hair and a penchant for flashing brilliant smiles, and her boffin of a father, Eric. Above all, he meets Cosmos, the world's most powerful computer - with an ego to match. The supercomputer provides George with a miraculous window on the universe. Through it, he obtains an insight into cosmology - from the universe's creation with the big bang to the present day. Along the way, lucky George gets the chance to explore spellbinding scientific topics ranging from the workings of stars to the make-up of the solar system's planets and their multitude of moons. It also discusses black holes - another children's favourite - and it would be odd indeed if the book hadn't done so. Professor Hawking, after all, is a world authority on these gravitationally gripping regions of space from whose clutches nothing - not even light - can escape. Hapless Eric, in fact, gets sucked into a black hole and . . . Sorry, you'll need to read it to find out what happens. The book, the first in a planned trilogy, is attractively illustrated with sketches, simple diagrams and high-definition colour photographs of celestial bodies - the latter from Cosmos' cosmic archives. Much of the science is integrated with the story. For example, explaining to George an interstellar cloud from which stars are born, Eric says: "It's a huge cloud in outer space, much bigger than the ones in the sky, made up of tiny particles which are all floating around inside it. There are so many of these particles that the cloud is enormous - it's so big that you could put millions and millions of Earths inside it."
