Description

Mind-expanding and hilarious!’ Jeff Kinney, author of the bestselling DIARY OF A WIMPY KID series.

This hilarious new illustrated series will make you laugh-out-loud AND grow your brain. Perfect for readers age 8+ and fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and The 13-Storey Treehouse.

Hi, I’m Oliver! I know what you’re thinking: what does an 11-year-old kid know about the universe? Am I a famous scientist? No. Am I a super-genius? Not really. 

I’m just trying to figure out the usual stuff: new school, new friends, how to avoid my annoying sister. But there’s one thing that DOES make sense: science! Outer space is totally my thing and I can tell you EVERYTHING you need to know about awesome stuff like: 

  • time-bending black holes 
  • how the Big Bang is like a fart 
  • aliens! (Well, there could be aliens.)

From bestselling writer and robotics engineer Jorge Cham, Oliver’s Great Big Universe is the first book in a STEM-themed, diary-style series. PRE-ORDER NOW! 

‘An absolute gem!’ Lincoln Peirce, author of the bestselling series BIG NATE.

‘A stellar confluence of comic episodes and cosmic information. In addition to brilliantly integrated comic moments – surprising plot twists add narrative pizzazz to a serious raft of data about the universe. An irresistibly entertaining introduction to astrophysics.’ – Kirkus starred review ?
