Professor Astro Cat's Frontiers Of Space book by Dr. Dominic Walliman and Ben Newman

This was actually a Junior Hipster find, but we think the retro styling of Professor Astro Cat's Frontiers Of Space by Dr. Dominic Walliman and Ben Newman would fit in well here too.

It's a kid's science book. Ok, we're not selling it well so far. So how about a science book packed with cool retro illustration? Any better? Flying Eye Books has brought together Dr. Dominic Walliman and illustrator Ben Newman for a book packed with midcentury-style imagery as well as everything your children need to know about this planet, the solar system, the galaxy and the universe. There's also pieces on gravity, extraterrestrial life and much more, all aimed at readers aged between 7 and 11 - but likely to appeal to a much wider audience.

If you want a copy, you can find out more and order at the publisher's site, although it is cheaper at, where it sells for £10.87.
