Dr. Tiffany Taylor is an evolutionary biologist currently doing research at the University of Reading. It was the sheer variety of life which first grabbed her attention, with each variation solving the problem of staying alive in a slightly different way. Evolution is a dynamic process, ever changing, and only those which can keep up with the pace will survive. She felt this concept was lost in current teaching methods, and so she wrote this book in order to introduce the concepts of evolution, without the jargon, in a fun and comprehensible way, with the hope of encouraging questions about the world we live in, and getting kids wondering why things are the way they are.
