"Larklight is a house that orbits the moon in an alternate Victorian era universe, where mankind has been exploring the solar system for at least a century. This is a very British story of space exploration that includes pirates, tea with muffins, and an extra-terrestrial threat to the Empire."
"This is the less famous (but no less charming) sequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Charlie and Willy Wonka ride the great glass elevator into space, where they encounter the Vicious Knids, dock with a space hotel, and are mistaken for Martians by the President."
"In this humorous adventure, Bradley joins Grandpa for a holiday in space, which turns out to be a very funny and sometimes quite beautiful place. As they make their way to the end of the Solar System, they see the pyramids of Mars, the boutiques of the Asteroid Belt, and the unwelcome sight of some savage space pirates."
"Co-written by Stephen Hawkings and his daughter Lucy, this makes science accessible by blending it with a good dollop of fantasy. A computer called Cosmos reveals the wonders of the universe to George by opening windows and portals to the most exotic parts of outer space."
"This is another charming book which teaches children while entertaining them. Uncle Albert (based on Albert Einstein) beams his neice Gedanken into the magical world of his 'thought bubble', where she learns about weightlessness and the speed of light."
"A beautiful book. The Little Prince's journey to earth is full of quaint little 'planetoids' that only have room for a single inhabitant. This is a timeless classic that deals with issues like love, loss, and death in a unique and charming way."
