A brilliantly funny first guide to genetics that is perfect for children aged 5 years and over.

This stunningly illustrated book will boggle your brain with astonishing facts, as it shows how we’re all related to every living thing on the planet. Did you know that a grain of rice has more genes than you? Or that you’re related to dogs, dung beetles and even daffodils? Luckily, even though you’re 99.9% like a chimpanzee, you’re still 100% YOU!

The extraordinary world of genetics has never been explained so simply.

You’ll be amazed at what makes you YOU.
