Publisher Summary

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.
