"A fantastic journey through time. It is a story of mammalian evolution told in a way that will engage and enchant, as well as educate, children and adults alike. It is a must for every school library -- and I shall give it to my grandchildren and my sister's grandchildren and my godchildren for Christmas and birthday presents."
-- Dr. Jane Goodall,

"These books are alive with wonder, radiance, and deep relevance . . . cosmic gifts that powerfully remind all humans about our source, our connections, and our responsibility. Now students have books to hold and read over and over again."

"Our place in the natural world and the marvelous story of how we came about is one of the greatest stories a child can learn. Jennifer Morgan relates our knowledge of human evolution with the wonder and excitement it deserves."

"The ability to translate complex, technical information about the world into language ordinary people can understand and enjoy is an art -- and doing so for young readers is the most difficult form of that art. This book proves for the third time in a row that Ms. Morgan is a master at it."
