“Fantastic little book. A great way to teach children about the basics of evolution – a refreshing alternative and something that continues to fire our six year old’s imagination. Very highly recommended.”

“This is one of the best books I ever bought to my daughter. Through a really interesting story, it precisely describes the real magic that ever happened and is still happening in this planet: evolution. This is a PROPER educational book!”

“Just buy this book for every young child that you know. Apparently they take it in even if they don’t understand it, and it pops up when it’s more relevant to what they’re learning.”
