At first, nothing lived on Earth. It was a noisy, hot, scary place. Choking gas exploded from volcanoes and oceans of lava bubbled around the globe... Then in the deep, dark ocean, something amazing happened. This is an exciting and dramatic story about how life began and developed on Planet Earth, written especially for younger children. The authors explain how the first living cell was created, and how the cells multiply and create jellyfish and worms, and then fish with bendy necks, which drag themselves out of the water into swampy forests. They tell the story of the biggest creatures that have ever walked on land - the dinosaurs. Long after that, hairy creatures who have babies, not eggs, take over, stand on two legs and spread around the world, some of them living through cataclysmic events such as ice ages and volcanic eruptions. Everyone living today is related to these survivors. With delightful illustrations including lots of detail and humour, all carefully researched and checked, this book shows the development of life on Earth in a truly accessible and simple way.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do."--Mark Twain Ever wondered if there must be more to life than this?Ever thought, "It's now or never"?Ever wanted to travel the world? Me too At the 'ripe old age' of fifty, I decided I wanted some fun - I wanted to live rather than just exist I wanted some wild and whacky experiences to tell my grandchildren about in years to come. So, after years of feeling like a hamster in a wheel, juggling work with children, I rebelled in the most spectacular way. I walked away from my job, rented my house out, went off travelling around the world for six months with my nineteen-year-old daughter, and embraced a whole new way of life. I hope you laugh as much as we did at the crazy things that happened to us and the madcap things we tried (white-water rafting, skydiving, hiking up glaciers, jumping off waterfalls and posing naked in front of them, to name a few). I hope it makes you realise that you only get one life, and now is the time to start living it, doing what you really want to and enjoying every precious moment. Follow your dreams--you'll be amazed where they take you I did, and my life has never been the same since. For more information about Life Begins at Fifty, please go to www.lifebeginsatfifty.info

"Jess Phoenix's work encompasses science and representation in such a delightful melding that it could only come from as spry and playful a soul as hers! Open this book and jump into the volcano!" —Patton Oswalt As a volcanologist, natural hazards expert, and founder of Blueprint Earth, Jess Phoenix has dedicated her life to scientific exploration. Her career path—hard earned in the male-dominated world of science—has led her into still-flowing Hawaiian lava fields, congressional races, glittering cocktail parties at Manhattan’s elite Explorers Club, and numerous pairs of Caterpillar work boots. It has also inspired her to devote her life to making science more inclusive and accessible. Ms. Adventure skillfully blends personal memoir, daring adventure, and scientific exploration, following Phoenix’s journey from reality television sites deep in Ecuadorian jungles to Andean glaciers, university classrooms to Death Valley in summer. She has even chased down members of a Mexican cartel to retrieve a stolen favorite rock hammer. Readers will delight in her unbelievable adventures, all embarked on for the love of science.
