Another hilarious and edifying book. The history of the earth in iambic pentameter!! You'll laugh your way through the book, only to realize in the end that you've learned something too. Also great for parents of tweens, teens. They may be more willing to read this overview because it's so funny...

The Cosmic Verses: A Rhyming History of the Universe is a cleverly written (in rhyming poetry) book detailing the history of the universe and all the theories surrounding it from ancient times to the present, covering all the great minds in the field from Plato to Professor Stephen Hawking. It should prove to be a fun and educational read for teens and adults who are interested in cosmology, astronomy and the history surrounding these scientific fields.
