Description

The award-winning cartoonist offers "a witty history of the planet" for young readers -- covering everything from the Big Bang to climate change (Publishers Weekly).

Almost 14.5 billion years ago, it all started with a Big Bang. What began as a cloud of gas, dust, and rock eventually took shape and bloomed into a molten sphere. Battered by asteroid collisions, ice ages, and shifting tectonic plates, our fledgling planet finally pushed forth continents. But if you think the earth has calmed down since then -- think again!

In this illustrated history of earth, the Sibert Honor medalist Don Brown teams up with geologist Michael Perfit to tell the strange-but-true saga of our planetary home. A knowlegeable groundhog and his earthworm sidekick take young readers through a wide range of topics -- from solar energy and liquid magma to the ozone layer and the formation of mountains. Plus mini-biographies of scientists are included throughout.

"A guaranteed hit with science lovers and a best bet for convincing skeptics that science is indeed a grand and exciting adventure." -- Kirkus Reviews
