Alfred Russel Wallace may not have been the first in the world to come up with the theory we now know as evolution, but he still made huge contributions to the world of science as the second. In the pursuit of knowledge and insects for his collection, he discovered thousands of living things previously unknown to science, had some animals named after him (including a flying frog and a jewel beetle!), and even maintained a friendship with the scientist who first developed the theory of evolution, Charles Darwin. Learn all about the life and discoveries of 19th century naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace in this entertaining book packed full of fun facts, vibrant illustrations, and interactive activities.
