Jacob stars in this Solar System story which can be used for the National Curriculum Key Stage 2 science topic

“Part fun, rhyming story and part text book, this book covers a Key Stage 2 curriculum topic”.

The famous astronomer, Patrick McFuddy and his son Jacob take an imaginary journey through our solar system and learn about the sun and the planets whilst bumping into Halley’s Comet along the way.


The amusing rhyming text contains the key facts about each object and there are numerous fact boxes with more detailed information and interesting facts. There are contents, index and glossary sections including a ‘tricky words’ feature.


We find that girls respond particularly well to the amusing rhyming story, which teaches them the important facts and, of course, the boys love fact boxes!


Sales of this book help to raise funds for the children’s charity, The Sick Children’s Trust.
