Why do children look like their parents? Why are some people blond and others brunette, and where do we get our eye colour from?

This book explains genetic theory, what genes are, why DNA plays an important role and what all these insights have to do with a curious monk. An exciting journey through the history of science, present-day genetic research and engineering and right through to the question of identity - because who would have thought how much of our personality is defined by our genes and how interesting genes can be?

MEDIA REVIEWS

Taking us through the history of science, explaining genes, DNA, and genetic engineering to young curious minds. I found this a fascinating read and all of the information was broken down in a way that made it fun and easy to understand. This book will definitely help answer any questions children have about their own identity. - Rebecca Evans at The Old Hall Bookshop, Gardners Booksellers Circle

[.] an extremely thorough journey through the history and present-day science of genetic research and engineering. - Barbara Band, Armadillo Magazine
