His selfish, globetrotting parents abandon him for yet another summer in Charles Darwin's strange, museum-like house, where Billy stumbles across a 200-year-old giant talking tortoise named Charles Darwin, by the famous man himself. Charles D, the tortoise, knows every inch of the house and every artefact in it, and he's keen to help Billy realise his powers and set him on the path to adventure.</p><p>A beautifully carved Inuit ivory necklace is the first object that whisks him back in time to the shrieking chaos of an Arctic blizzard to meet its rightful owner, a girl called Ahnah, her shape-shifting grandmother and the mysterious explorer Pytheas.

<p>Launching a brilliantly feel-good, hilarious and charming new series illustrated in black and white by the author. Artwork on every spread and a map of discovery as the series grows.</p>

<p>An important message about the rightful homes of artefacts woven into an exciting, fun and magical adventure.</p>

<p>Author quote: <i>I wanted to write a history of the discovery of the world with lots of maps and all the great explorers, but the more I learned about it the harder it was to decide who should tell the story and how. So I came up with Billy Shaman. A new kind of explorer who returns the contents of the Darwin museum to their original homes.</i></p>
