This is an exciting and dramatic story about how life began and developed on Planet Earth, written especially for younger children. The authors explain how the first living cell was created, and how the cells multiplied to create jellyfish and worms, and then fish with bendy necks, which dragged themselves out of the water into swampy forests. They tell the story of the biggest creatures that have ever walked on land – the dinosaurs. Long after that, hairy creatures who have babies, not eggs, take over, stand on two legs and spread around the world, some of them living through cataclysmic events such as ice ages and volcanic eruptions. Everyone living today is related to these survivors.

With delightful illustrations, including lots of detail and humour, all carefully researched and checked, this book shows the development of life on Earth in a truly accessible and simple way. For children up to eight years.

By Catherine Barr and Steve Williams. Illustrated by Amy Husband.

Size: 28.5 x 25cm.
