Product Description

Albert Einstein. The genius who invented e=mc2. Possibly the brainiest scientist in history – and the battiest! But did you know that Al’s life was almost as wild as his hair? Not only was an unruly young Al expelled from school, but he was spied on by the Nazis and the FBI. And after he died, he had his brain removed! Yes, even though he’s dead, Al’s still full of surprises!

Author/Illustrator

Dr Mike Goldsmith

Dr Mike Goldsmith is a qualified astro-physicist, working at the National Physical Laboratory. His book on Einstein in the Dead Famous series was shortlisted for the 2002 Aventis junior prize for science writing and he has written Scientists and Inventors in the same series.

Philip Reeve

21699 philip reeve 1 206745

Philip Reeve was born and raised in Brighton, where he worked in a bookshop for years while also producing and directing a number of no-budget theatre projects.

Philip then began illustrating and has since provided cartoons and jokes for around forty books, including the best-selling Scholastic series Horrible Histories, as well as Murderous Maths and Dead Famous.

He’s been writing stories since he was five, but Mortal Engines was the first to be published. Mortal Engines defies easy categorisation. It is a gripping adventure story set in an inspired fantasy world, where moving cities trawl the globe. A magical and unique read, it immediately caught the attention of readers and reviewers and won several major awards. Three more Hungry Cities novels followed, and Philip’s latest project are the Fever Crumb books, prequels set centuries before the events of Mortal Engines.

Philip has also written Buster Bayliss, a series for younger readers, and stand alone novels including Here Lies Arthur, which won the Carnegie Medal.

Philip lives in Devon with his wife and son and his interests are walking, drawing, writing and reading.
