What age? Are you talking about picture books or novels?

The Darkest Dark by Chris Hadfield is good. Lovely illustrations.

Yep, Hawking's George series are great, my 7yo son read them all.
There's also "Unlocking the universe" by the hawkings which is more factual.

DK Space Exploration is good as are the Usborne books about space.

Ds got Welcome to Mars last year and really enjoyed it. It’s co-authored by Buzz Aldrin and is for dc around your dds age but an interesting read for adults too.
