Decent but rather dull picture-book biography of Darwin. And I'm quite interested in Darwin so if it didn't hold my interest I can't imagine it would do much for a small child. On the other hand, I'm mainly interested in his ideas and their ramifications, not his life, so maybe this would appeal more to someone else. I still think it would seem kind of dead, though. I didn't get a lot of sense of his personality or how he formulated his ideas. And the illustrations, although it a style I like (sort of pseudo-woodcut) were very static. Why so many images of Darwin standing still talking to other men? Those didn't really add anything.
