Review: Biology: Life as We Know It!

User Review  - William Crosby - Goodreads

Explains the basics of biology. Although a children's book with cutesy drawings and writing, it is surprisingly informative for people like me who don't know anything about mitochondria, ribosomes, protists and keratin. Read full review

About the author (2010)

Dan Green studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge University. Since graduating, he has written and edited many popular science titles and humorous books, become the editor of a South American national newspaper, worked as a travel writer, as well as developing and editing the wildly successful Horrible Science magazine collection. He is the “voice” of Basher’s bestselling science-made-easy books, and to date has written nine titles in the series.

Simon Basher is an artist and designer who has fun playing in the world of contemporary character design. Inspired by a love of simple line work and a rich palette, his characters blend the edge of manga with the cuteness of Hello Kitty.
