What keeps objects from floating out of your hand?
What if your feet drifted away from the ground?
What stopped everything from floating into space?
In beautiful Jason Chin fashion, young readers are given another fantastic non-fiction picture book, this time concerning Newton's most famous law. Chin speaks with authority, zooming out further and further as he explains gravity and its effects. The story is simple, reminding me of A Trip Into Space in that respect, but all the necessary information is there for a basic introduction to the subject matter. There is a very interesting element in that there is a book within the book that leads to a surprising "twist" ending, if you can call it that. I originally saw this book as a galley and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Worth every penny.
