Having made quantum physics popular among young people and adults alike, Sonia Fernández-Vidal now explains the universe to children.
The book for the whole family that Carl Sagan would have loved.
In 2011, Sonia Fernández-Vidal shed light on the smallest elements known to science. Now she has set herself the challenge of explaining the vastest entity conceivable: the Cosmos. And she does it in such a way that the youngest members of the family can easily understand it. To achieve this feat, she has had the help of the best-known illustrator in Catalonia, Pilarín Bayés, as well as that of Thales of Miletus, Galileo, Einstein and Carl Sagan. Together, they will tell us the greatest story of all -that of the place we live in.
