About the Author

Idan Ben-Barak writes science books, usually for children. They've been translated into over a dozen languages and won several awards. He lives in Melbourne with his family. Sometimes, after they go to bed, he plays his guitar a bit. Idan has degrees in microbiology and in the history and philosophy of science, a diploma in library studies, and a day job that has very little to do with any of the above.

Philip Bunting is an author and illustrator, with a soft spot for creating picture books for sleep-deprived, time-poor, raisin-encrusted parents (and their children). He believes that the more fun the child has during their early reading experiences, the more likely they will be to return to books, improve their emergent literacy skills, and later find joy in reading and learning. Philip's books have been translated into multiple languages, and published in over 30 countries around the world. Since his first book was published in 2017, he has received multiple accolades, including Honours from the CBCA, and making the list for the Kate Greenaway Medal in 2018. Philip lives with his young family in the hills behind Noosa, Queensland.


'elegantly explains how life began ... Matter-of-fact, conversational language is paired with bright, colourful illustrations to share what scientists know about early Earth and what they are still trying to figure out. It then explains beautifully how elements joined to form molecules and then, over a very long time, to become life as we know it today. There's a huge, fabulous "taa-daa!" fold-out page at the end, showing off the amazing creatures on Earth and how we are all linked. And that's a lovely message too.' Bookskidslove

'an entertaining and scientific exploration of the origins of life on Earth. Idan is an expert in this area but, along with the wonderful illustrations by Philip Bunting, the text is simple and so easy to understand. Suitable to share with the family or as a discussion starter with older kids.' The West Australian
