"Charles Darwin: Little Guides to Great Lives" by Rachel Katstaller and Dan Green (Laurence King Publishing)

Here's a fantastic new set of extremely collectible non-fiction books detailing the lives of some of the most inspirational folk in history...
Taking cues from the "Little People, Big Dreams" range of biographical titles for kids, the new "Little Guides to Great Lives" range is a pocket-sized book filled with tons of interesting and fascinating facts, and some really brilliant character illustrations about the lives of many famous historical and contemporary figures who have made a huge contribution in their chosen fields.

Starting with Charles Darwin, from creative team Rachel Katstaller and Dan Green, this little guide is a really awesome jumping-in point for kids who want to learn more about the man who revolutionised our views on evolution through his amazing book "The Origin of Species" and his scientific expeditions and studies of the amazing creatures that populate our planet.

Darwin's ideas about evolution caused both outrage and wonder at the time they were first revealed, and quickly made him one of the most famous men in history. 

From his five-year voyage across the high seas on "The Beagle" to 20 years of research, follow Darwin on his adventure to prove a theory that would change the world. 

Little Guides to Great Lives is a brand new series of small-format guides introducing children to the most inspirational figures from history in a fun, accessible way. Not just inspirational women, but men too, with some truly fascinating folk from Frida Kahlo to Marie Curie, from Leonardo Da Vinci to Nelson Mandela.

With dazzling eye-catching covers and endpapers, and thoroughly detailed text that doesn't talk down to kids, these are really excellent and gorgeously presented. 

Collect the set!

"Little Guides to Great Lives" will be released on 1st October 2018, published by Laurence King Publishing (kindly supplied for review).
