On a beautiful day, the last thing Etty wants to do is sit inside baking honey cake. Shed much rather be outside exploring with her father, Charles Darwin.
Many are familiar with Darwins theory of evolution, but few know Darwin the family man. In writing The Humblebee Hunter, Deborah Hopkinson relied on research to create a lyrical fictional account of Charles Darwin at home with his children, discovering the wonders of their own back yard. Told from the perspective of Darwin's daughter Etty, the story portrays a very human side of one of the most revered figures in the history of science.
