about

“An illuminating, humanizing portrait of a famous scientist.” —Booklist, starred review

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.
Kathleen Krull, the noted social historian, lives in San Diego, California. Boris Kulikov, the illustrator of this series, lives in New York City.

An excellent resource for contemporary classroom discussions.” —Booklist, starred review“Krull does a fabulous job of making Darwin real, from boyhood to adulthood.
