Can a Childrens Book be written to explain String/M Theories, that is friendly and relatable?

Awe inspiring and thought provoking for children. My hope is build curiosity and beauty. Perhaps developing characters being Protons, neutrons, electrons, quarks, bosons, fermions. Any ideas on a story line to introduce youngsters to this theory?

  • Sep 7 2012: Good question. I considered the endless questions that children ask ,the "Whys?" "Howcome?" "Whats that?" and the "What ifs?" Decided to go with the What if question. Offering a childlike grasp on the story, through the eyes of a child. Thank you Ken Brown for your question.
