Product Description

You’ve probably heard of Isaac Newton. He is dead famous for: discovering gravity, being a right clever dick – and getting hit on the head with an apple! But did you know that our Isaac came bottom of the class at school, poked sticks in his eye and nearly blinded himself, and nearly got himself executed? Yes – even though he’s dead, Isaac’s still full of surprises!

Author/Illustrator

Kjartan Poskitt

21963 kjartan poskitt 1 206744

Kjartan lives in York with his wife and four children. He regularly performs at venues all over the country.

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.

    This an amazing book telling about Isaac Newton – the guy who discovered gravity. It contain some spooky and horrible things like calculus etc. But it is awesome and I recommend you to read this.
