    George's parents, who have always been wary of technology, warn him about their new neighbors: Eric is a scientist and his daughter, Annie, seems to be following in his footsteps. But when George befriends them and Cosmos, their super-computer, he finds himself on a wildly fun adventure, while learning about physics, time, and the universe. With Cosmos' help, he can travel to other planets and a black hole. But what would happen if the wrong people got their hands on Cosmos?

    Barbara says: "Great Listen!"
    "Entertaining and educational at the same time."

    Would you consider the audio edition of George's Secret Key to the Universe to be better than the print version?

    I really enjoyed this book. It's meant for kids over 7-8 years old so younger kids might be confused by some of the science being explained. But the situations the characters find themselves in does a great job of finding a visual way of explaining the science. It's a great book for kids who have an interest in the sciences or the natural world. The relationship between George and Annie is lovely and believable. It's nice to see a girl who doesn't fall into the stereotypic roles of either the ditzy girl or the brainiac know-it-all. The last "chapter" in the audio version is of Stephen Hawking himself discussing space and solar system. Wonderful!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When George and Eric lose contact with Cosmos and you don't know what will happen to them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.
