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.
If you’ve not discovered The Many Worlds of Albie Bright yet, here’s a look inside the book:
