The Times have named The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day, the new book by multi-award-winning Christopher Edge, author of The Many Worlds of Albie Bright and The Jamie Drake Equation, as their Children’s Book of the Week!
Alex O’Connell writes: “Wow, I wish Christopher Edge had been my science teacher. The writer, who in timely fashion nods to Stephen Hawking early in this gripping story, has a magical way of distilling difficult concepts for the very young: relativity, gravity, time and space, infinity. It helps, of course, that he weaves these ideas into a high-energy thriller about virtual reality, black holes and strained sibling relationships.”
