9 year old grandson enjoyed this book very much

I got this for my grandson aged 9 who is an excellent reader. he had had the abridged edition through Kids Geographic. he was glued to his MP3 player. he found it funny and entertaining. Had a quick listen myself and it well read and lots of fun and informative.

Entertaining and educational

See my review for George's Secret Key to the Universe. Both these audio books are excellent and rewarding. I would say they would especially appeal to kids of 9–11, especially boys (and their mums). Younger children would probably enjoy them and maybe those a little older too but teenagers would probably feel that the characters are too young. Despite the brilliance of their authors, these stories are fun, easy to follow and not too erudite. The information filters through without any sense that we are learning lessons. My son has listened to both books over and over again and is now an excellent authority on the solar system at his school.
