Aviva Reed is an author and illustrator and describes herself as a visual ecologist. This beautifully designed hardback book combines exquisite and minutely detailed illustrations with descriptive, evocative, and scientifically accurate prose to stimulate thinking about the evolution of our planet and how the various ecosystems evolved and interconnect.

As deep time passed,
the ocean was slowly filled with
molecules, cells, compounds and shells.

Life was thriving, all microbial and gooey,
slowly becoming skeletal and pooey!

Edited by Professor John Buckeridge (RMIT), a prominent paleontologist and ethicist, Eon. The story of the Fossils is sure to be a contender for the CBCA Eve Pownall Awards in 2019 for quality, inspiring and original non-fiction. Suitable for all ages – don’t miss out on this treasure!


Available from INT Books for schools and libraries across Australia.
