Product description


"An amazing find! An easy to understand, hilarious and devastating book about evolution! The illustrations of the little Borklings discovering they need fur, longer necks, camouflage... I'm dying. I love it." - Goodreads

"A clever little lesson on natural selection through a story of the borks. Love love love. It's so difficult to find good children's books but one that teaches too? Rare!"- Goodreads
