Neal Layton wins School Library Association Award

Congratulations to Neal Layton whose book, The Story of Stars, has won the SLA Information Book Award for the under 7's category. The judges said that his book is… "a superb simple and straightforward book which informs through being totally entertaining: with working pop-ups, humour and an imaginative progression - it is a totally engaging delight." 

Neal's interest in life, the universe and everything has led to an amazing amount of research and his collaboration with paper engineer, Richard Ferguson has created a unique, child friendly view of the stars, solar systems and galaxies. Neal poses and answers the big questions that you might ask when you look up at the night sky full of stars and wonder: "what are they and where are they?". This book is the third in the series, published by Hodder Children's Books.

Just Published: The Story of Stars by Neal Layton

The multi-talented Neal Layton gives us his unique perspective on stars, solar systems and galaxies in The Story of Stars, published by Hodder this month. This fun pop-up book, follows on from the success of The Story of Everything and The Story of Things, which make complicated theories accessible to children. Did you know that the Ancient Greeks did a join-the-dots with the night sky? Or that the sun is our nearest star? Or that stars are born, live and die, just like us?
