And Now, in Ukrainian

 A (Very) Short History of Life on Earth has added another language to its vocabulary. Translation rights have already been acquired for twelve languages (all details here) - to which a thirteenth can be added. 

Family Leisure Club has acquired the rights to translate it into Ukrainian. 

Of course, it takes a while before translation rights turn into a book for sale. The first non-English version to hit the streets will be in Dutch (Spectrum), on 16 September - same date as the UK version from Picador. This'll be followed by the German edition, from Hoffmann und Campe, on 5 October. The Italian edition, from Einaudi, comes out early in 2022.
