The captivating new companion to international bestsellers Here We Are and What We’ll Build

A father takes his two children on a thrilling out-of-this-world adventure into space and invites them to look back at Earth and the conflicts that have taken place since the beginning of time. This becomes a brief history of the world and a whistle-stop guide to the universe, all rolled into one – and told with Oliver Jeffers's inimitable perspective, wit and exquisite artwork.

Meanwhile Back on Earth gives a unique look at life on Earth with a cosmic perspective – and an enduring message that what binds us together matters more than what sets us apart. A timely story for families everywhere.

‘Perspective can come from time or distance. And, whenever you get physically far enough away, that battle doesn’t seem to important any more. With physical distance, your perspective can totally shift.’ Oliver Jeffers.

'A dose of reality. A dash of whimsy.' Time Magazine.

‘Meanwhile Back on Earth celebrates how precious our planet is, and emphasizes to children that it is humanity’s only home.’ The Guardian.
