Darwin’s Dragons by Lindsay Galvin


Bookseller review by children’s bookseller Alex:

‘Set partly on one of the Galapagos Islands and partly in Victorian London, Darwin’s dragons centres on the life of a cabin boy, Syms, aboard Charles Darwin’s ship. Whilst the settings are real, when he is shipwrecked, what Syms finds is anything but. This cynical bookseller was not sure about the mix of fantasy and reality but Lindsay Galvin does a top notch job blending the two, by the end you really believe it could have happened! The story is exciting, fun and a real page turner. It’s a story for fans of adventure, historical fiction and animals, highly recommended.’
