About the Author

Sabina Radeva is a graphic designer, illustrator, and teacher based in Oxford, England. In 2008 she graduated the Molecular Biology M.Sc. programs at Max Planck Institute, Germany. Gradually, she realised that her creative hobbies brought more happiness and fulfilment than working in the lab so she began to take on-line creative classes, read numerous design textbooks and attended art and design conferences. In 2009 she left science and started freelancing as a graphic designer. In 2015 she started her MA in Illustration studies at University of Hertfordshire.

Charles Darwin was born on February 12, 1809 in Shropshire, England. He was educated at Edinburgh University and Christ's College, Cambridge. Between 1831 and 1836 he travelled in South America aboard the H.M.S Beagle to explore the geology and natural history of the area, and published his journal of findings in 1839. His most famous book On the Origin of the Species by Means of Natural Selection, appeared in 1859 and is arguably one of the most important scientific works ever published. The theories of evolution and natural selection proposed in this book and The Descent of Man (1871) are still the subject of intense debate and scrutiny today. Charles Darwin died on 19 April, 1882 and was buried in Westminster Abbey.

Reviews

Vibrantly illustrated ... a beautiful, accessible volume, a must for primary schools, libraries and beyond. * The Bookseller *
An entrancing picture-book retelling of Darwin's on the Origin of Species ... filled with informative, beautifully designed diagrams and maps. * The Guardian *
Sabina's love of science and illustration combine wonderfully in this undeniably beautiful book, distilling Darwin's study down and then conveying it with complete clarity and obvious delight. * Sophy Henn *
A great introduction to one of the most important books ever written. * RTE Guide *
Evolution explained, in this strikingly accessible picture book...perfect for a younger audience * Picture Book Blogger *
Sabina Radeva's book is a wonderful introduction to Charles Darwin's ideas. It will appeal to children, but also, by its deft handling of a number of common misconceptions, may well surprise many adults. She has not shied away from either historical language or scientific ideas and handles both with great charm and without oversimplification. -- Alison M. Pearn, Associate Director * Darwin Correspondence Project *
A triumph of concision that appeals both to the budding young scientist and to the adult who has given up hope of ever reading Darwin in the original -- Emily Bearn * The Telegraph *
