This is a great biography of Charles Darwin for the grammar school set==a mixture of Darwin the adventurer and Darwin the nerd, with all the true things in place, and enough for the to be able to follow the story of this momentous discovery and time in the mid-19th century. On top of that, the illustrations are gorgeous, and hit the right note of complexity to help kids visualize what it was that Darwin observed that made him thing that organisms adapt to their micro-environments. I would highly recommend this for the budding young scientist in any crowd.
