Description

How did the universe start? How will it end? Will we ever visit the stars? Can we take short cuts through space? Can we travel in time? Could we live forever? Welcome to extreme science. Get the facts. Then read 'The Man in the Machine', a story about aliens who create universes inside computers.

This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.
