"This slim, delightful romp of a biography should make Mr. Darwin and his theory of evolution by natural selection a lot more accessible and enjoyable for young readers..." --Booklist Online "The combination of the first-person narrative and the illustrations makes for an engaging and fast-paced read. Students will also enjoy the useful "Darwinian Dictionary," the author's "interview" with Darwin, and the addition of current photographs of places visited by the great naturalist." --School Library Journal
