Alex Frith

Alex Frith has been a children's author for more than a decade, covering every topic on Earth, from prehistoric animals to robots with artificial intelligence, and everything under the Sun, from the origins of the Universe to the adventures of Thor, God of Thunder. At home he reads too many comics, and attempts to raise three children with an awful lot of help from his wife, and no help at all from his cat.

Press Reviews

This book was about science, space, the sky, the smallest things, the jungle, mixed reactions, putting things together, seeing into the future and the secrets behind everything. The pictures were very good... I think my friends would like this book. In fact, one of my friends in my class (primary 2) has it now.

Excellent introduction to science
I gave this to my son Jack (age 6.5), he loves it and has been firing questions at me ever since!
