Evolution Book Turned Away By American Publishers

 A kid's book on evolution didn't sit well with American publishers. The new book was aimed at children ages 8 to 13,  and was pitched to several major publishers in America. But each turned down printing it. It's called "Evolution: "How We and All Living Things Came To Be". Publishers said over 40-percent of of their buying audience have doubts about evolution. Author Daniel Loxton said as he went from publisher to publisher, many told him the book would be, quote, "a tough sell." Loxton took it to Canada, where it's been selling off the shelves.
