Black holes and Uncle Albert

This book introduces Uncle Albert and his intrepid niece Gedanken. It follows them as they make some astonishing discoveries when they set out on their next mission: to investigate the universe.
Children discover black holes that swallow up everything, tape measures that shrink when they are taken downstairs, speeded-up time, and how it is that we are made of stardust in this adventure story set in deepest space.
