A beautifully illustrated introduction to the concept of DNA for younger readers. All living things grow – every plant and every animal, including human beings. Some things grow fast and others grow slow; some things grow by tiny degrees, while others grow to be enormous. Yet there’s something about the way we grow that links us all together. Ever since you were the size of a dot, your body has been following a set of instructions: a code, which connects you with every creature on the planet…

With words from Nicola Davies and exquisite artwork by Emily Sutton, this groundbreaking book is certain to enchant and inspire children.

'This picturebook is richly informative about animals, plants and people, making for an engaging science lesson. Meanwhile, Davies has a series of YouTube videos in which she reads some of her other picturebooks about science and nature, including Tiny: The Invisible World of Microbes, which is handy for putting coronavirus in the context of benevolent microbes.'
