Product description

Review

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

2.0 out of 5 stars Signs of wear
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 November 2020
Firstly I was surprised by a quick delivery and the book itself is amazing (the content and the photos/pictures). It supposed to be a Christmas present for my daughter, who loves reading and she soaks in every information about the space.
Unfortunately only two stars for the signs of wear. It supposed to be a new book. I am going to contact Amazon and will leave another review afterwards.
