Format: Paperback
I have read Black Holes and Uncle Albert and I think it's really good. In fact, I think it's one of the best books I've ever read! It's about a ten-year-old girl finding out about the Universe with her Uncle Albert. WHAT is a black hole? HOW do you travel in a straight line but in a circle as well? WHY do things fall to the ground? The answers are all in this book. There is another book in the series - The Time and Space of Uncle Albert.

Why isn't this basic school reading? If all children started with this, by the time they got to the less thrilling details of science lessons they would realise there is a point to it. Write to somebody! (This counts as my effort).

Black Holes And Uncle Albert is a fantastic book. It's about a girl and her Uncle Albert, who has a thought bubble that can beam the girl (Gedanken)up into itself. Gedanken has many adventures exploring the Universe in the bubble, as well as watching an imaginary one. I really liked Uncle Albert, as well as the other book,The Time and Space of Uncle Albert. But the fun ends when Gedanken almost gets sucked into a black hole...

A really good read for youngsters that have a scientifically inquisitive mind. Also useful for those that are looking for inventive ways to explain such difficult concepts.

Buy the set!

Bought this for g/daughter (aged 9), she has now read all the Uncle Albert books and adores them. I like the fact that the main character is a girl, and not the usual feeble "pink" princess character found in so many books aimed at this age group.

A good explanation of real physics in the guise of a short story for young scientists around top juniors or early secondary school age.

Purchased for a very bright 7 year old who wants to work for NASA! I have no doubt that he will do just that
