We’ve been absolutely thrilled by the response so far to The Many Worlds of Albie Bright, the incredible new book by Christopher Edge, author of the Twelve Minutes to Midnight trilogy.
Piers Torday, author of The Last Wild, called The Many Worlds of Albie Bright “hilarious and full of heart”. The Times named it their children’s book of the week, writing: “In the world of children’s books, it’s the equivalent of proving the earth is round. Christopher Edge has written a clever story infused with science that wears its intelligence humorously, introduces complex ideas with the lightest of touches … Give the man his own element on the periodic table of children’s authors.” And there’s been a FANTASTIC response to the book from bloggers, booksellers and librarians.
And tonight you can hear Christopher Edge discussing the book – and the story behind it – on BBC Radio 4’s Front Row programme! Chris will be discussing children’s fiction, quantum physics and The Many Worlds of Albie Bright with Samira Ahmed – you can listen in from 7.15pm.
