Where did we come from?
Join Harriet, Darwin’s pet tortoise, and Milton, Schrodinger’s indecisive cat on a time-travelling quest of discovery, unravelling scientific exploration and religious beliefs and how they fit together.
Throughout the centuries humans have been looking for answers to BIG questions – how did the universe start? Is there a God behind it? Has science explained away the need for a God, or can faith enhance scientific discovery?
On this adventure, Harriet and Milton meet the great Victorian scientists. Voyage with Darwin as he worked out his theory of Evolution. Step into Harriet and Milton’s time machine, bring some snacks, and enjoy this curious quest of discovery.
Written by Julia Golding, winner of the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2006, and the Nestle Smarties Book Prize 2006.

Hosted by a tortoise and a cat, you will travel through time. You will laugh, be stimulated, and be enchanted by the wonderful illustrations. The books are a delight in every way."

Science is good for the 'how' questions but does not necessarily have the answers on the 'why' questions. Can science and religion talk to each other? Enjoy this series and learn more about science and the enriching dialogue between science and faith."
