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

“Powerful and visually spectacular, Moth is the remarkable evolution story that 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. Against a lush backdrop of lichen-covered trees, the peppered moth lies hidden. Until the world begins to change… Along come people with their magnificent machines which stain the land with soot. In a beautiful landscape changed by humans how will one little moth survive? This remarkable retelling of the story of the peppered moth is the perfect introduction to natural selection and evolution for children.”
