"Even without science the story stands up well, with plenty of humour, both verbal and slapstick, and copious illustrations. It does rely on an element of fantasy, such as the world's second most powerful nano supercomputer disguised as a hamster!" The School Librarian "Full of hairy moments, and scientific puzzles, this is a roller-coaster ride for George and Annie ... If you like science like me, and enjoy adventure books, then this is the book for you!" Guardian Children's User Review "This gripping adventure sets your mind racing from the very first page. Add to that the equally as fascinating scientific facts provided by Stephen Hawking and what you have is a really great book to read" Scribler Magazine "World famous scientist Stephen Hawking and his daughter Lucy have created a third amazing adventure cleverly blended with real science. A trip to the world famous Large Hadron Collider gives George and his friend Annie the chance to find out about the Big Bang, the very first moments of the earth's creation at first hand" Lovereading4Kids
