"Lasky's text balances the exuberant artwork with well-organized information, gracefully sprinkling in quotes from Darwin." - School Library Journal (starred review)
In a clear, engaging narrative, Kathryn Lasky takes readers along on Darwin's journey, from his beetle-collecting childhood to his observations of variations in plants and animals, suggesting that all living things are evolving over time. Matthew Trueman's striking mixed-media illustrations include actual objects found in nature, enhancing this compelling look at the man behind the bold theory that would change the way we think about the world-and ourselves.
