This is not as good as the prequel (George’s Secret Key to the Universe): the story is a bit cheesy and might put off some of the clever kids that it is aiming to reach. Nevertheless, I think Stephen Hawking and his daughter did a wonderful job in presenting complicated science concepts (redshift, the Goldilocks zone, M-theory etc.) to children, therewith inspiring them to read on and look further into the subject. The illustrations are gorgeous; the background information is very readable and nicely woven into the story.
