  Adventures in Space Volume 2: Heading for the Sun
1. Exciting
First experiences of space travel. Distance and speed have to be taken into account and learned when journeying from the earth to the sun. A fascinating adventure and a good introduction to better understand the following volumes. An encounter with flitting ghostly particles from the sun - so-called neutrinos - is especially well done. A foretaste of the nanoworld.

  Adventures in Space Band 3: In the land of the comets Steinläuse Lorilo, Lorila und Lorili
1. Amusing and unique
Here we have an insight into a world which humans cannot see. It is a world larger than a nanoworld but smaller than a millimetre. The Muffi family are cute!
2. Surprising
Too often one forgets that we share our living space with living organisms such as mites and bacteria. The author has succeeded in making this world visible to us by having these tiny living organisms race through the solar system on a comet! .
3. Simply beautiful
Glorious pictures of our solar system. A useful book for anyone interested in our planets.

The latest astronomical knowledge about supernovae, quasars, black holes and dying stars which is usually difficult to understand, is explained in fantastic illustrations with the aid of short and amusing texts. I have never read such an unique book! .

  Adventures in Space Band 5: The Nanoworld
1. Rather cool!
At the beginning one has to make an effort to read on but then enthusiasm kicks in. It is not difficult to understand dry scientific material when it is put together in the form of an exciting adventure.
2. Unusual!
I enjoyed reading about the flighty cats and being introduced to the world of dwarfs or nanoworld. Comparison of the microcosm to the macrocosm is unique in its explanation. One begins to reflect, no longer sure of what we thought we knew. Definitely to be recommended to people with a thirst for knowledge. .
3. Quite exhausting!
Understanding the nanoworld was not easy. The planet of cats with the flighty cats (Darwin`s theory) was more amusing. Must be read!

  Adventures in Space Band 6: Distant Worlds
1. Very successful
Amazingly simple – in the form of an exciting adventure story, which explains complicated happenings such as curved space, creation and passing of universe etc. Interesting for broad-minded young persons but also for adults. Recommendation: Should be read together!
2. Profound, rousing!
Here established scientific knowledge is laid down as a base in answering general philosophical questions. It is an attempt to find answers to questions which have tormented mankind from time immemorial, e.g. Why do we exist? Where do we come from? What kind of world do we live in? What do we see? It is up to the persons reading this story to accept the solutions given here or not. .
3. Fascinating, dramatic!
This moving adventure into space cannot fail to delight and stimulate one`s thoughts. It is as informative as it is exciting.

The author‘s request

Due to her professional activities the author knows that school children can be particularly motivated towards becoming interested in and providing innovative thoughts on areas of learning which reach the limits of our understanding of the world: all you have to do in a humorous and easily comprehensible manner.
In purposely childlike and naive stories always told in an exciting way, many new scientifically proven discoveries are presented as
amusing children's reference books without them being recognized or regarded as such. In this manner young readers will playfully be inspired by a world, which thanks to scientific progress, has become more recognizable for us in many ways.
Opening new doors is necessary and knowledge of the relationships, especially in the field of science, is becoming increasingly more complexe and demanding. Consequently, you cannot begin early enough to allow children a glimps into these worlds.
