The Humblebee Hunter: Inspired by the Life & Experiments of Charles Darwin and His Children by Deborah Hopkinson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


On a beautiful day, the last thing Etty wants to do is sit inside baking honey cake. Shed much rather be outside exploring with her father, Charles Darwin. Many are familiar with Darwins theory of evolution, but few know Darwin the family man. In writing "The Humblebee Hunter," Deborah Hopkinson relied on research to create a lyrical fictional account of Charles Darwin at home with his children, discovering the wonders of their own back yard. Told from the perspective of Darwin's daughter Etty, the story portrays a very human side of one of the most revered figures in the history of science.
