Etty Darwin and the Four Pebble Problem

Etty loves make-believe. Her dad loves science. Etty believes in fairies. Her dad would need to see some proof that they exist. But they both love nature, conversation and each other. So they go for a walk to talk, think, and ponder life, science, and fairies... together.

Inspired by the real-life daughter of Charles Darwin, this is a gorgeous rumination on belief and imagination. Etty went on to become a valued and keen editor of Charles's work and a thoughtful and intellectual being in her own right. This imagined conversation between Etty and Charles as they stroll around Charles's real-life "thinking track" explores their close relationship and shows that even science is nothing without an open mind and imagination.
