When Stephen Hawking was a little boy, people often called him odd. He was different. When the other kids were busy playing and having fun Stephen wondered about the mysteries of the space, stars and beyond. But then a sudden bout of illness changed his life forever. But Hawkings wasn’t one who’d give up so easily. He fought his illness, overcame disabilities and his genius and endless curiosity powered his work. He went on to make several revolutionary discoveries, including the black hole theory that shook the science world.
Beautifully illustrated by Nirzara Verurkar and movingly told by Arthy Muthanna Singh and Mamta Nainy, the story of a little boy who overcame all odds and went to be become one of the greatest astrophysicist of all times—comes blazingly alive for the little ones.
