'A rare pleasure ... a true story of adaptation and hope.' - Wall Street Journal 'Moth ... is a stunning visual experience.' - Books for Keeps 'Moth ... is another picture book with inbuilt growing room, an introduction to the concept of evolution in language both scientific and poetic, full of thrill and peril.' - Times Literary Supplement "This is a story of light and dark." Powerful and visually spectacular, Moth is the remarkable evolution story that captures the struggle of animal survival against the background of an evolving human world in a unique and atmospheric introduction to Darwin's theory of Natural Selection. Against a lush backdrop of lichen-covered trees, the peppered moth lies hidden. Until the world begins to change ... A clever picture book text about the extraordinary way in which animals have evolved, intertwined with the complication of human intervention. Along come people with their magnificent machines which stain the land with soot. In a beautiful landscape changed by humans how will one little moth survive? Powerful and visually spectacular, Moth is the remarkable evolution story that captures the struggle of animal survival against the background of an evolving human world in a unique and atmospheric introduction to Darwin's theory of Natural Selection. Winner of the 2020 AAAS Subaru Prize for Excellence in Science Books and chosen for the CLPE Power of Reading Project 2019-20. Shortlisted for the English Association Best Picture Book Awards 2019 and English 4-11 Picture Book Awards 2019.
