Overview

The Sandwalk Adventures is a fanciful tale of follicle mites that just happen to be living in the left eyebrow of Charles Darwin himself. To the mites, their host Darwin is a god, known as Flycatcher, and stories of his mighty ocean-spewing, world-creating powers have been handed down from generation to generation...of eyebrow mites. Upon hearing of their colorfully explained misunderstanding of who he actually is, Darwin sets the mites straight...after he convinces himself that the curious voices in his head are just ordinary voices...in his eyebrow. A humorous series of illustrated lessons in natural selection and evolution ensues and a warm-hearted story, and history lesson, about one of the greatest naturalists of all time unfolds with it. Recommended for readers with an interest in real science bounced off the funny bone. Enjoy some wholesome family entertainment that will make you think and, if you're not careful, might even teach you a thing or two. Suitable for the high school set and above or for advanced younger readers.
