article imageOp-Ed: Stephen Hawking as Children's Book Author

By Bob Ewing     Mar 19, 2009 in World
Stephen Hawking began a children's book trilogy with his daughter Lucy and the French physicist Christophe Galfard: the first book was released in 2007. The second will come out May 19.
I have read George's Secret Key to the Universe and recommend it to anyone who want their child to learn about the scientific process in general and black holes in the particular. This combined fact and fiction work is beautifully illustrated and easy to understand.
The concept behind the trilogy is to "provide a modern vision of cosmology from the Big Bang to the present day," without presenting it as magic, Galfard said.
"All of what we see (in the universe) corresponds exactly to what has happened already," he added.
The second book in the trilogy will be released on May 19. George's Cosmic Treasure Hunt raises the questions, Could there be life out there? How do you find a planet in outer space? And if you could talk to aliens, what would you say?
If this one is as good as the first the Hawkings will have established themselves as first rate children's book authors.
