What makes a fish a fish? Why do giraffes have such long necks? How can all living things be related, from plants, tigers, and fungi to dragonflies, octopuses, and humans? Evolution has the answer to this and many, many more questions about life on Earth. This book explores what evolution is, how it works, and who discovered its secrets. It teaches the journey of life, from the very first, and very simple, form of life that developed on Earth 3,8 billion years ago, to the incredible talking apes that inhabit the planet today, who we know as human beings!
