Overview

When Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species in 1859, he shocked the world. In it he claimed that humans were just another animal species that had evolved from more primitive life forms. Years earlier, Darwin had collected thousands of animal specimens during a five-year voyage around the world, specimens that he used to make his case for biologic evolution through natural selection. Darwin and the True Story of the Dinosaurs tells the story of the brilliant naturalist who changed humankind's understanding of its origins. 

Reviews

"The combination of the first-person narrative and the illustrations makes for an engaging and fast-paced read." —School Library Journal

"This slim, delightful romp of a biography should make Mr. Darwin and his theory of evolution by natural selection a lot more accessible and enjoyable for young readers..." —Booklist Online 

"The combination of the first-person narrative and the illustrations makes for an engaging and fast-paced read. Students will also enjoy the useful "Darwinian Dictionary," the author's "interview" with Darwin, and the addition of current photographs of places visited by the great naturalist." —School Library Journal
