What Mr. Darwin Saw

This book follows the journey of HMS Beagle, showing life on-board the ship for Charles Darwin as well as the captain, crew and the expedition’s artist.

The reader sees Darwin discovering and observing insect life in Brazil, fossils in Argentina, earthquakes in Chile and turtles in the Galapagos Islands.

The reader is therefore able to follow the steps which led to Darwin’s inspired theory of evolution, while also showing the adventures and escapades he had during the voyage.

This book introduces young readers to one of the world’s most important scientists and his discoveries and concludes with a simple explanation of the theory of evolution.
