Teaching Baby Science: Jostein Gaarder, Hello? Is Anybody There? . London: Orion 1996.

Translated by Sally Gardner.

One for the parents.

Narrator tells a little girl about how, when he was waiting for his baby brother to be born, an alien landed who looked just like a baby and who had to be taught all about Earth. Essentially, this is a marshmallowy, gooey book which is not even redeemed by the rather good science about evolution and speculation it tries to impart.
