My latest book, beautifully illustrated by Rufus Thomas, is now available from the PSTT shop here:
There is also a video and accompanying teacher's handbook which you can download for free!
The Molliebird tells the story of a little blue bird whose forest home burns down. All her chicks are bright blue in this sooty landscape and they keep being eaten by the tree snake. But natural selection and an unusual mate play their hand and the process of evolution is made clear.
This book has been written to help teachers, parents and other educators to teach the mechanism of evolution and to tackle the common misconceptions that children have about this topic.
