More About the Author

I found my first fossil at the age of 8 and never looked back. I am now wondering where to put the 10 foot long Ichthyosaur that's on the dining room table and the collection of large pliosaur femurs under the piano. Inbetween field trips I read geology at UCL and spent 35 years producing science programmes at the BBC. I live in wonder at the natural world, have endless fascination for what we know about it and excitement about what we don't know. Now I have taken some time out to write more books and ... maybe ... tidy up those fossils.

Product Description

Amazon Review

A combination of voluptuous, dazzling illustrations and rich, illuminating text makes this excellent book a must-have for all would be star-gazers.

From the lush descriptions of each of the planets, to the luxurious stories of the perpetually unfolding riddles of the skies, The Kingfisher Book of Space is an irresistible guide to an ever-expanding universe. From the introduction to the basics of our own Solar System to the dramatic and sometimes violent clashes of stars, galaxies and black holes, Martin Redfern clearly captures the magic of space while delivering the facts with a flourishing and ingenious style.

More than a reference book, The Kingfisher Book of Space charts the history and mysteries of the planets, taking in technical advances that have allowed scientists to investigate outer space while allowing the mind to run riot with ideas of what might really lie in those strange and unbelievable worlds beyond our own horizons. (Ages 8 to 13) --Susan Harrison
