"This beautifully illustrated journey over the rainbow gave me the
answers to fascinating questions I hadn't even realised I really
needed to ask! A book shimmering with joyously colourful facts to
focus the curiosity of young readers."
"Can You Get Rainbows in Space is a stunning kaleidoscope beaming out a huge range of science topics, from astronomy to zoology, expertly stitched together by the threads of colours!"
*Professor Raman Prinja*
"The most colourful book about science and our world and why it is so beautiful!"
"It's a glowing journey through the rainbow. Who knew the secret of why some eyes are blue, and that it's actually an optical illusion! Lavishly illustrated, this book shows us there's so much to find out about our colourful world and how we see it."
