Darwin: A Graphic Biography is an expedition into the physical and intellectual adventures of Charles Darwin. Presenting Darwin’s life in a smart and entertaining graphic novel, the book attempts to not only educate the reader about Darwin but also the scientific world of the 1800s.
The graphic novel captures a young Darwin finding his way on adventures in the fields near his house. The ups, downs, and near-misses of his youth are portrayed honestly and without foreshadowing of his later fame, showing Darwin wasn’t somehow predestined to greatness. He was curious, patient, and meticulous. He persevered--a great lesson about what science is all about.
“Eugene Byrne and Simon Gurr have crafted another history title of note with Darwin: A Graphic Biography, which will be published in February. I’ve read many books on Darwin, and still think there are not enough in the world, yet find it easy to recommend this new one to teens.” — The Bookslut
