"More than informative, this ecological adventure calls for action."
Kirkus Reviews

"Swim through the art on each page of this book, while soaking up the science. Rachel Ignotofsky brilliantly uses her skills to create the ultimate illustrated story of life on Earth, delivering another blow to the misconception that art and science occupy separate realms. This book is a delight."

, authors of Magnitude: The Scale of the Universe

“This fantastic book combines Rachel Ignotofsky's instantly-recognizable illustrations with her passion for knowledge. While, on first glance, it may not look like a science book, it is absolutely jam-packed with fascinating, well-researched information. The format is great, too—each section stands on its own merit, but Rachel carefully and seamlessly intertwines them, weaving together the complex tale of life on Earth. The result is a very beautiful scientific treasure trove for anyone interested in the world's ecosystems.”

The book is at once awestruck and awe-inspiring, managing to balance admiration for the natural world with passionate pleas for its protection, and is sure to captivate nature- and science-loving readers within and beyond its intended age range.”
– Kelsey Oseid
