A new laugh-out-loud illustrated series about school, space and everything in between!

Readers aged 5+ will love the crazy humour and quirky illustrations in this STEM-themed chapter book

Move over Tom Gates and Wimpy Kid! Oliver's Great Big Universe has all the ingredients of a middle grade hit - school-based drama, slapstick humour, brilliant illustrations and a cast of relatable characters. Plus it's all STEM-inspired - ideal for newly independent and reluctant readers.


Hi, I’m Oliver! I know what you’re thinking: what does an 11-year-old kid know about the universe? Am I a famous scientist? No. Am I a super-genius? Not really.

I’m just trying to figure out the usual stuff: new school, new friends, how to avoid my annoying sister. But there’s one thing that DOES make sense: science! Outer space is totally my thing and I can tell you EVERYTHING you need to know about awesome stuff like:

- time-bending black holes
- how the Big Bang is like a fart
- aliens! (Well, there could be aliens.)

Jorge Cham is a bestselling author and Emmy-nominated creator. He obtained his PhD in robotics from Stanford University and was previously an instructor and research associate at Caltech. He is originally from Panama.
