Overview

All his life, Charles Darwin hated controversy. Yet he takes his place among the Giants of Science for what remains an immensely controversial subject: the theory of evolution. Darwin began piecing together his explanation for how all living things change or adapt during his five-year voyage on HMS Beagle. But it took him twenty years to go public, for fear of the backlash his theory would cause. Once again, Kathleen Krull delivers a witty and astute picture of one of history’s greatest scientists.

Praise

An excellent resource for contemporary classroom discussions.” Booklist, starred review

“Krull does a fabulous job of making Darwin real, from boyhood to adulthood. The information is obviously well researched and it is presented in a reader-friendly manner…This is a fine addition to the series.” School Library Journal

“Krull’s lively writing fleshes out [his life and accomplishments]…Kulikov’s occasional art brings humor and drama to this brisk account.” Horn Book
