"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.
Back matter includes a bibliography.
