One rainy day Albert exhausts all his usual activities – playing with toys, reading books, finding pirate treasure and saving animals from the flood – and starts ruminating. He thinks about his house, then his street and then the wider area of the town. There is a simple but effective text and appealing illustrations given space to live on the page. There are pictures of Albert’s bedroom, a map of the town and strikingly similar patterns of raindrops falling and of stars in the universe. Then his thoughts turn to larger and larger entities: his town is in a country, the country is on Earth, Earth is in the solar system and the solar system is part of the universe. Finally, he has to ask the ultimate question ‘…what is the universe in?’ We leave Albert flying among the stars in his home-made space ship. Adventures in the mind are not bounded by time or space. Some young children (rather like another Albert!) puzzle about these conundrums. Buy this for any imaginative child of four or over.
