What Darwin Saw
The Journey That Changed the World


by Rosalyn Schanzer

This highly graphic depiction of Darwin and evolution is a great choice for fans of graphic novels. It's not officially a graphic novel, but it's close! (Pages are composed of bright watercolor cartoons and speech bubbles or small bits of text.)

This book is largely focused just on Darwin's time on the Beagle and when he finally presented his theory (as opposed to his whole life.

"Among the new picture books about Darwin...this one stands up well" (School Library Journal).  And teachers will appreciate the bibliography and research notes section appended at the end.
