Youngsters can head to infinity and byons by stepping into the unknown and learn all about space.

Children throughout Hartlepool and east Durham can find out all they need to know about the solar system with the release of a colourful title this week.

Space is the 17th book in Disney’s Wonderful World of Knowledge series.

Presented by the ever-popular Disney characters, the book is full of quirky fact-bites and figures.

How fast is the speed of light?

How big is the largest volcano on Mars?

And how quickly is the earth actually spinning?

These are just some of the questions which are answered in the creative title.

Space-fascinated youngsters can find out more about the unknown and add to the impressive Disney collection when the title becomes available this week.

Children at Golden Flatts Primary School, in Seaton Lane, Seaton Carew, were lucky enough to get a glance at the book last week.

Gemma Baines, nursery teacher at the school said the subject is one which fascinates children.

Miss Baines said: “We had a star party in the winter where a specialist came in and spent time with the children explaining to them all about space.

“All of the children were very interested and had some excellent questions.

“It is a subject which seems to fascinate them, it may be because it’s something they have no experience of, they can look but they can’t actually get hands on like they can with other subjects.

“But they can learn all about space in different books and on the internet.”

The book is available to Mail readers for just £2.99 with tokens available in the newspaper. The vouchers can then be exchanged at a number of outlets throughout the town.

A number of exciting titles in the series are still to be released in the coming weeks. Transport, Birds are The World of Art are just some of the books to look out for.
