Review

"Terrific . . . Page after page shows gorgeous, swirling color set in the blackness of infinity . . . Against these stunning visuals is a retelling of the classical myth of Icarus."
-Meghan Cox Gurdon, "Wall Street Journal
""Do your part to get kids psyched about science with physicist Brian Greene's Icarus at the Edge of Time, a futuristic fable that will take you and your budding scientists to the ends of the universe and back. Full-color photos from the Hubble Space Telescope bring the beauty of the cosmos right to your fingertips."
-"Parade Magazine
""A perfect book for smart parents to read to smart children. Plus, it will make all concerned even smarter."
-Tim Follos, "Washington Post Express"
"Moving and successful . . . Beautifully illustrated . . . The images frame the deep and complex thought at the heart of the tale . . . [Greene] weaves the wonder of modern physics through the fabric of his story-and thus enables his readers to confront its strangeness themselves."
-Thomas Levenson, "Seed Magazine
