Це літо може стати для Джорджа та Енні ще одним кроком до мрії: вони дізнаються про відбір дітлахів у тренувальний табір, в якому готуватимуть кандидатів для польотів на Марс! Реальних і повноцінних польотів, у ракеті, а не через портал суперкомп’ютера Космоса. Звісно, друзі заповнюють анкету і схрещують пальці, аби потрапити в табір. І хоч за місце в таборі змагаються найрозумніші дітлахи з усього світу, Джордж та Енні мають значно більше причин потрапити туди.

Бо вони не лише прагнуть стати май

Зустріч із давніми хорошими друзями — це завжди радість. А читання вже п’ятої книги із серії про пригоди школяра Джорджа у космосі, написаної донькою й батьком Гокінґами, дає привід претендувати на звання запеклих друзів.

Що ж стосується героїв книг — друзів Джорджа та Енні, то в цій історії вони вирішили записатися у школу майбутніх астронавтів, які колись зможуть полетіти на Марс. Спочатку все було начебто зрозуміло й досить просто, однак...

У кожній історії про Джорджа трапляється якесь "однак

Ако трябва да се спра на една младежка поредица, която да окачествя като най-стойностна, градивна и успешно балансираща между неподправено забавление и образователния фактор, то май първото място се полага на космическите пътешествия на Джордж! Родните читатели явно също оценяват достойнствата на детските романи на покойния учен Стивън Хокинг и дъщеря му Луси, тъй като от изд. „Сиела” наскоро ни зарадваха с вече петото заглавие от серията. А „Джордж и синята луна” по нищо не отстъпва на предходн ...more

‘George and the Blue Moon’ is currently the latest book of the George series which contains five books with adventures in space. From a black hole rescue mission to old revenge stories to stopping a maniac from sending unsuspecting humans onto the surface of an icy celestial desert, the series has it all. The series was written by one of the greatest minds of the century-Stephen Hawking-along with his daughter Lucy Hawking.

Before I give you a summary, I suggest reading the earlier books in the s
The George series is a middle grade series by Stephen and Lucy Hawking, and features George and Annie, two young scientists who are interested in space travel and cosmology.

In this outing, George and Annie deal with cyber-bullying, explore space, and are chosen to be future astronauts sent to Mars.

I like that the book has several fascinating essays on different subjects (Volcanoes, Oceans, the moon Europa) that are written clearly and in a manner that is able to be understood by younger readers
George and the Blue Moon by Lucy Hawking and Stephen Hawking is the next book of the series. When George and his best friend, Annie, join a youth astronaut training camp, not all is well. Mysterious things start occurring; for example, (view spoiler)

The nonfiction pages within the story provide lots of information on what happens in

A rollercoaster ride from beginning to end - the storyline of this book is much better than that of its predecessors. Most of the science is pitched at a lower level than previously: some of the earlier books overshot the 8+ age range a bit by including very advanced physics and computer science. The ending is quite a shocker.

It's a strong conclusion to the series. Space and science enthusiasts will be interested in the debate these books are sure to illicit. I am glad they promote the view of science as something every changing and growing - while also being interconnected - story to story - scientific discipline to scientific discipline.

I like that this series has essays explaining concepts in more depth scattered throughout the story. I might like it better if each was at a chapter's end just because it irritates me a little that I feel like I have to pause in the reading to read the essay or bookmark it for later when I'm caught up in the tale.

It deals with the chance to travel in space, cyber bullying, people being overly competitive, and also learning how to put up with people you don't initially like. While the characters

this was a surprise.
i haven't read many sci-fi books, especially middle grade so i wasn't really expecting much to begin with but it was actually pretty amazing and even though its middle grade it felt like a young adult book.

i started this book on a whim, not really sure if i actually wanted to read it. it gradually started becoming more and more interesting so i continued. i mostly liked the book but by rating it four stars you'd probably think i had some problems with it well, you were right.

Отримав справжнє задоволення від читання. Середина книжки - захоплююча пригодницька фантастика коли не знаєш що буде далі. Які ж пригоди спіткають наших героїв, як їм вдасться викрутитись з усіх випробувань? На жаль кінець книжки більш простий і не такий захоплюючий. Але тим не менш, ставлю максимальний бал з огляду на цільову аудиторію.

It might be accurate in its science, but it's clunky in its execution. It reads like an attempt to combine Ender's Game and My Teacher Is An Alien that somehow manages to reproduce all of their shortcomings without any of the flair.

A children's book. Similar to Hardy Boys and Famous Five.

A good story with plenty of astronomy and space travel information provided by scientists and astronauts. The book ends with a cliff hanger so you have to read the next episode.

Len som sa utvrdila v tom, že Gregorove a Ankine vesmírne dobrodružstvá sú moja najobľúbenejšia detská séria. Ako vždy, výborné čítanie.
