Billy Shaman and the Rage of the Sea Witch
Abandoned for the summer holidays in the Charles Darwin museum, it looks like Billy is in for a dull time, until he meets a giant tortoise in the vegetable garden who knew the great scientist personally. As the specimens in the museum begin to come to life, Billy learns about the history of the discovery of the world and the startling truth that we are all descended from one ancestor. But his most surprising discovery of all is his own gift. Billy is a shaman, and it is his job to return the unhappy spirits trapped in Darwin’s collection to their proper homes in space and time.
