The Many Worlds of Albie Bright Kindle Edition
About the Author
Christopher Edge is an award-winning children's author whose books have been translated into more than twenty languages.
Christopher grew up in Manchester where he spent most of his childhood in the local library, dreaming up stories. After studying English at university, he worked in a record shop, mostly listening to Björk, before being led astray by the film Dead Poets Society into a short-lived career as an English teacher. After leaving teaching he worked in publishing in a job that allowed him to read lots of brilliant children's books, and in 2007 went freelance as a publishing and education consultant, working with organisations such as Booktrust and Oxford University Press on resources to inspire children as readers and writers.
His novel The Many Worlds of Albie Bright won several children's book awards and was also nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Medal, as was his novel The Jamie Drake Equation, which was also selected as one of the best new children's books of 2017 for Independent Bookshop Week. The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day was rchosen by The Times as their Children's Book of the Week. His other books include the critically-acclaimed The Longest Night of Charlie Noon and the Twelve Minutes to Midnight series. He is also the author of How to Write Your Best Story Ever! and How To Be A Young #Writer, inspirational guides to creative writing for children and teenagers.
Christopher has appeared at many literary festivals including the Hay Festival, Edinburgh International Book Festival, Emirates Festival of Literature, Cheltenham Literature Festival and was also invited to give the keynote speech at the NATE (National Association for the Teaching of English) conference. He has also authored articles on reading and education for publications such as The Guardian and Teach Primary magazine.
Christopher now lives in Gloucestershire with his wife and two children and still spends most of his time in the local library, dreaming up stories.

I'm getting requests for The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day now!
I LOVED Albie and was gripped as his experiment played out. Quantum Banana Theory has to be my favourite scientific breakthrough of all time! I was kept on the edge of my seat, never sure what would happen next. The story was an amazing tale of loss, love and letting go which had me weeping and laughing in equal measure (though I was crying significantly more at the end!) - it really got to me!
I'd recommend this book very highly - both for children and adults. Get a copy!
It’s so brilliant for adults and children yeah why these books are for children it would be for adults as well, so brilliant and clever written thank you book tube
