The last book in a trilogy illustrated with Dana Andersen's cosmic paintings.

We are proud to announce the publication of the third book in the acclaimed children’s trilogy on the evolution of life. Mammals Who Morph; the Universe Tells our Earth Story has just been released by Dawn Publications. The trilogy, now complete, tells the epic drama of the evolution of life in a uniquely vivid and engaging way. Born with a Bang; the Universe Tells our Cosmic Story tells the story of life’s evolution from just before the big bang to the early earth. From Lava to Life: The Universe Tells Our Earth Story tracks the evolution of plants and animals, ending with the extinction of the dinosaurs. Mammals Who Morph; the Universe Tells our Earth Story reveals the evolution of our human species from mousey mammals to the present and beyond.

Writes Dr. Jane Goodall, renowned primatologist, "Mammals Who Morph is a fantastic journey through time. It is the story of mammalian evolution told in a way that will engage and enchant, as well as educate, children and adults alike. It is a must for every school library—and I shall give it to my grandchildren and my sister's grandchildren and my godchildren for Christmas and birthday presents."

These award-winning children’s books present the story of the evolution of the universe in a revolutionary new approach which integrates cutting edge science with vivid imagination and feeling. Kids and families adore these new cosmology classics that engage the ‘whole brain’. Highly praised by cultural historian Thomas Berry, Cosmologist Brian Swimme, and luminaries such as Edgar Mitchell, Duane Elgin, Mathew Fox, Barbara Marx Hubbard as well as scientists such as Nobel prize winning physicist Dr. Leon Lederman (author of The God Particle) and Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson (director of Hayden Planetarium in the American Museum of Natural History), these books are the unprecedented vanguard of new science education.
