    I searched for a thread but couldn't find one...

    Saw this a while back:

    Hawking to write children's book - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/5075516.stm
    Just thought it may be of interest.

    "...and all of a sudden he tunneled through barrier and came to platform 1/137."

    I wish Gamow would come out of his grave and do the job of writing a book for kids. I just loved Mr.Tompkins in Paperback.

    I wonder if it will be anything like "A Wrinkle in Time", by Madeleine L'Engle?
