The first ever picture-book retelling of Charles Darwin''s On The Origin of Species.

''A long, long time ago, before humans even existed, the living world looked very different from how it looks today.''

For most of human history, people believed that everything in the world was created at once. But scientists started to challenge that idea and in 1859 Charles Darwin, a naturalist and biologist, wrote a famous book called On the Origin of Species that revolutionised the way that we have understood evolution ever since.

Now molecular biologist and illustrator Sabina Radeva has recreated Darwin''s most famous work as a beautifully illustrated book for children and adults alike. The stunning pictures bring the theory of evolution to life for young readers, and anyone who wants to learn about evolution.

Pulling together Darwin''s observations from his travels around the world and his ground-breaking explanation of how species form, develop, and change over hundreds of thousands of years, On The Origin of Species is as relevant and important now as it ever was.

A very important project, most beautifully realised. Sabina Radeva''s thoughtful text and gorgeous pictures together tell the story of On The Origin of Species, and of Evolution itself, with clarity, humour and great charm. - Emma Darwin

Review quote
Sabina Radeva''s book is a wonderful introduction to Charles Darwin''s ideas. It will appeal to children, but also, by its deft handling of a number of common misconceptions, may well surprise many adults. She has not shied away from either historical language or scientific ideas and handles both with great charm and without oversimplification.
Review quote
A triumph of concision that appeals both to the budding young scientist and to the adult who has given up hope of ever reading Darwin in the original
