The Great Lives in Graphics series is a new way of looking at the lives of famous and influential people. It takes the essential dates and achievements of each person’s life, mixes them with lesser-known facts and trivia, and uses infographics to show them in a fresh visual way that is genuinely engaging for children and young adults.

This graphic retelling of Stephen’s story gives children a colourful snapshot of his life and the world he grew up in, while educating them on everything from black holes to the big bang.
