This children's chapter book portrays Einstein and his theories in a whole new way. His theories are laid out in simple terms that anyone can understand. Three children meet a talking raven named Barnaby. Barnaby takes the children through a wormhole in time to meet Albert Einstein. In their fascinating exchange Einstein offers the children sage advice. He also explains his ideas to them using analogies such as cookies on a cookie sheet. The reader is able to visualize the concepts in a clear tangible fashion. The story integrates many historical references and concepts on a variety of subjects. The reader will be entertained, informed and left with a desire to read more adventures through the wormhole. ( )

What a great way to introduce Einstein's theories to children. It's about time someone lays out his complex theories in an easy to understand format. The story integrates so many tidbits of information that the reader will leave with more knowledge than he started out with. It is a wonderful story. I can't wait for the next one. ( )
