I continue to enjoy this collaborative work of Lucy and Stephen Hawking I love the story of George, Cosmos, Eric, Annie and even the pig But I especially love first the blending of fiction and non fiction, then the distinct separation of the two The Hawkings make me look up and learn about our universe and beyond Thank you.

The whole George series is completely awesome.
