Year 2009 marks the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth. One of the most important figures in our history, he formed the basis of the evolutionary theory and changed forever the face of science. A thin and lanky Micky, who is labelled ‘Mouse’ by his sister and ‘Worm’ by his friends, hates going to school. His mother stresses on the importance of worms and how Charles Darwin was fascinated by earthworms and used them for his experiments. She takes him to the local library and Micky immerses himself in a ‘Talking Book’ that unfolds the story of Charles Darwin.
