ABOUT THE BOOKThere Was a Black Hole That Swallowed the Universe

Spark creative conversations about celestial beings with this clever parody from the #1 science author for kids. PLUS, use a black light to reveal secret, invisible text and artwork that reverses the story from nothing to the scientific creation of everything 

There was a black hole that swallowed the universe.
I don't know why it swallowed the universe--oh well, it couldn't get worse.
There was a black hole that swallowed a galaxy.
It left quite a cavity after swallowing that galaxy.
It swallowed the galaxies that filled universe.
I don't know why it swallowed the universe--oh well, it couldn't get worse.

Using the familiar rhythm of "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly," follow along as the black hole swallows up the universe and everything that exists in it, from the biggest to the smallest pieces of matter. The silly, vibrant artwork is sure to make stargazers of all ages smile.

PLEASE KEEP THIS! You'll need to include these confirmations when returning the leftover books so you won't be charged for them! If they do ask you for a book without a confirmation, just email us the name of the student and parent's name and we can check. DEADLINE: Online orders with SCHOOL PICK UP will only be available for one week after the school visit.
