“Where do I come from? Why does anything exist? For too long, young minds have been fobbed off with traditional answers, which are not only false but actually rather boring compared with the truth. Michael Rubino tells the true story—which means the scientific story—illustrated with his
captivating paintings. Children will be fascinated by this book, and they’ll use it to educate their parents.”
—Richard Dawkins

“The illustrations in Michael Rubino’s Bang! How We Came to Be are lively, breathtaking, flowing, thought provoking, colorful, and sharp. If they do not transport you and your children to the past and enchant . . . with the wonder that is nature and evolution—I give up. The narrative flows easily, carrying nothing pedantic or political; it simply recounts what science has learned of the history of the particular life-form called humans. This wonderful book would be a life-affirming gift for any child.”
—Cameron M. Smith, PhD, Author of The Top Ten Myths about Evolution and The Fact of Evolution
