Here we are at 4.6 billion years ago, and as we raise the curtain . . . the STORY OF LIFE is about to begin! (Yes, that’s right – we’re telling the story of the ENTIRE history of Planet Earth).
“In the running for the greatest children’s picture book about Earth . . . Grey’s jokes and wild imagination elevate this far above the many non-fiction science titles for children” – THE TIMES

“Mini Grey’s book is a tour de force, introducing a complex topic in an accessible and engaging way.” – BOOKS FOR KEEPS
Take your seats for the ENTIRE history of Planet Earth, as we take a whistle-stop tour from the birth of Earth, to the age of bacteria, the era of dinosaurs . . . to the moment of people (blink and you’ll miss it).
Narrated by a friendly troop of insects and with mind-blowing, lively illustrations, this illustrated non-fiction book will entertain and educate, as we put on a show, the greatest show, the show of the evolution of life on Earth.
From internationally bestselling creator, Mini Grey, winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal, this is her first non-fiction book and it’s told with wit, humour and heart.
