June 2018 • Bloomsbury Illustrated by Daniel Egnéus

Thank you to everyone who has reviewed Moth since it launched in June!

I’ve collected some excerpts from reviews here.

Powerful and visually spectacular, Moth captures the struggle of animal survival against the background of a changing human world in a unique and atmospheric introduction to Darwin’s theory of natural selection.

If I could only have written one book, it would be this one – explaining natural selection in all its wild, magnificent beauty. Watch Bloomsbury’s beautiful trailer here:


Read more about natural selection in my Misadventures of Charles Darwin, and why I love writing about science for children.
