Description: The fourth of four comic-style books providing an introduction to the beginning of time. Cartoon illustrations accompany the text to retell the story of the Big Bang, evolution, dinosaurs and the beginning of mankind. Events are explained in simple terms with statistics and timelines included.

Synopsis: All children love comic-strips and they are a brilliant way of encouraging children to read. Until now, this format has rarely been used with non-fiction. The information in these four books is presented in an entertaining and accessible way, with accurate yet fun illustrations and a clear and engaging text. Each of the four books forms a chapter in the history of the world.
