From Apes to Homo Sapiens

Bengt-Erik Engholm & Jonna Björnstjerna

The history of humankind told with a twinkle in the eye, richly and humorously illustrated by Jonna Björnstjerna.
How did we become who we are, you and me? A long time has passed from when we climbed treesand moved around on all fours to when we built the first robot that could work for us.
How did societies develop the way they did? What important discoveries and inventions were we brilliant enough to make along the way? It has been a long time since the first person burned his fingers on the fire or got cut by the first knife. Not only have we become less hairy and smarter in the last 200 000 years, our gods have also become more modern.

From Apes to Homo Sapiens is reminiscent of Yuval Noah Harari’s best-selling Sapiens. While being educational, it is also fun and easily accessible for age 9+.
