PROFESSOR ASTROKATZ - UNIVERSUM OHNE GRENZEN
Written by a scientist, a physicist to be precise, this book explains the great mysteries of space to children (which most adults hardly grasp!) like space and time, the Big Bang - but also more concrete topics like the moon, life on mars and some of the more famous space launches like Apollo 11. An amazing book!

Lucy and Stephen Hawking
DER GEHEIME SCHLÜSSEL ZUM UNIVERSUM
This book is a super suspenseful adventure story while offering lots of insights into space, told by Lucy and no other than Stephen Hawking.
It is great for all space nerds, but is a great read for children, who love a good story and have no particular interest in space (yet).
George gets to know the physicist and his daughter Anna and to his big surprise they have a computer, Cosmos, with which they travel space.
After some great trips out there, the evil scientist Reeper Wind learns about Cosmos and wants to get hold of it...
