Involving children in debates about the world's most important issues is an essential part of Sapienship's mission. So we are thrilled to manage the creation and production of Unstoppable Us – Yuval Noah Harari's first ever book series for younger readers. Sapienship's editorial, design, research and diversity teams are facilitating the development of this immersive non-fiction series for kids, working closely with Yuval and the book's illustrator, Ricard Zaplana Ruiz, alongside editorial teams from publishers C.H. Beck and dtv. Volume 1 in the series, Unstoppable Us: How Humans Took Over the World (2022), became a New York Times bestseller shortly after its publication, and was recommended by Jeff Kinney, Kristen Bell and Kirkus. Sapienship is also proud to have developed an educational digital workshop inspired by Unstoppable Us.
From the savannahs of Africa to the ice caps of Greenland, humans rule planet Earth. We are all-conquering and insatiable, most creative and most destructive. But how did we get to be so powerful?
Unstoppable Us reveals that humans have a superpower, and that we’ve used it to create strange and mysterious things — from ghosts and spirits to governments and corporations.
Follow the journey of ancient humans out of Africa, and on the way find out how fire shrank our stomachs, what the game of football tells us about being human, and why money is the most successful fairy tale ever.
This is epic history as you’ve never heard it before, with dwarves, giant snakes, a Great Lion Spirit that lives above the clouds, and the finger of a 50,000 year old child revealing mysteries of human origins.
In this mind-blowing true story for middle-grade readers, Yuval Noah Harari brings his signature style to a whole new audience, accompanied by vibrant colour illustrations by Ricard Zaplana Ruiz. Starting with Volume 1: How Humans Took Over the World, the book series has one key message for kids: the world in which we live didn’t have to be the way it is. People made it what it is. And people can change it.
Whether you're 9 or 99, Unstoppable Us can be enjoyed by anyone who ever wondered: Who are we? And how did we get here?
