Publisher's Summary

Explore how the universe began - and thwart evil along the way - in this cosmic adventure from Stephen and Lucy Hawking.

George has problems. He has twin baby sisters at home who demand his parents’ attention. His beloved pig, Freddy, has been exiled to a farm, where he’s miserable. And worst of all, his best friend, Annie, has made a new friend whom she seems to like more than George.

So George jumps at the chance to help Eric with his plans to run a big experiment in Switzerland that seeks to explore the earliest moment of the universe. But there is a conspiracy afoot, and a group of evildoers is planning to sabotage the experiment. A mysterious message from George’s old nemesis, Reeper, brings shocking new information, but whose side is Reeper really on? And can George repair his friendship with Annie and piece together the clues before Eric’s experiment is destroyed forever?

This engaging adventure features essays by Professor Stephen Hawking and other eminent physicists about the origins of the universe and ends by explaining how the Big Bang happened - in reverse!

Way less enjoyable than prior two

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Not sure

My 10 year old son really enjoyed the prior 2 Hawking books in the series, but this one seemed to be a much weaker story and narration.

Would you be willing to try another one of James Goode’s performances?

No, it was awful
