The Earth has come a very long way from the molten planet with oceans of magma that existed 4.5 billion years ago. Since then, the land has shifted, the climate has changed, and life has flourished. But how exactly did living things come to be?
In this beautifully illustrated book, scientists Sarah Darwin and Eva-Maria Sadowski will enlighten you about what evolution is and how it works, including the theory of natural selection that Sarah's great-great-grandfather Charles Darwin and naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace came up with.
Budding botanists and wildlife lovers will be enthralled by this in-depth tour of life that leaves no stone unturned. Find out how plants, humans, pet dogs and everything else came to be and what this might mean for our future.
