Reseña del editor
Liam is too big for his boots. And his football strip. And his school blazer. But being super-sized height-wise has its advantages: he's the only eleven-year-old to ever ride the G-force defying Cosmic rollercoaster - or be offered the chance to drive a Porsche. Long-legged Liam makes a giant leap for boy-kind by competing with a group of adults for the chance to go into space. Is Liam the best boy for the job? Sometimes being big isn't all about being a grown-up.

Kids seven and up should like Cosmic a lot-- probably boys more than girls though. The perfect age range would be ten to thirteen. Younger than that and they might not be able to appreciate the themes (such as what it means to be a parent, both for the child and for the adult), and older than that and they're probably onto edgier, more (what they'd consider) grown-up stuff. Take a look at the first couple of chapters in the "Look Inside" feature here on Amazon (the first few chapters are very short). I think that's the best way to judge whether you or your kids would like it. I think you'll see what I mean about the writing itself. If you're not hooked after reading the sample then the book isn't for you.
I haven't ready any of Boyce's other books but now I will, and I can't wait. (I've seen the movie Millions though and it was very good. I recommend it.)
What did I like? I liked Mr. Boyce's relaxed, fun (and occasionally funny) writing style. He was writing in first person (which makes this style easier), and his pace was fast.
Would I recommend it? Not really.
The book, I must say, wasn't quite appealing for the time (mainly because I was working on Fox Trot - my favorite comic book). However, after reading the ending first, I was able to get back in course and finished Cosmic in a flash.
To sum-up, it was a great book and I enjoyed it a lot.
Great book. Sort of a modern Dahl, in my mind -- the five chosen children, each with a chaperone, each a caricature of their type, touring the fantastical, secret wonderland of a crazy-genius. But in this book, it's space, not chocolate. "Charlie" doesn't inherit the factory, but he does fly to the moon (and back!).
I enjoyed it very much. My only quibbles with it are only just that: Quibbles. I felt like the ending was drawn out a bit more than it needed to be (after the first or second time around the moon I was ready for them to just get on with it and get home already). But I loved the dad theme, the character development, the writing, and the humor.
