History 2018-06-07T08:26:50+00:00

Project Description


My natural history work is varied, from Dorling Kindersley Cross-sections to books with flaps and fold-outs and first readers. My natural history work has featured on the UK National Curriculum. An exciting new natural history series for age 5+ will be published in 2019, in partnership with the National Trust.

My history work spans 2.5 million years, from the Stone Age to the Twentieth Century. Recently I created a series of archaeology-based books for Franklin Watts, called Found, to introduce children to history through exciting finds.

About My Work

I’m an internationally-published children’s book author. This site is an introduction to me and to my extensive range of work. My backlist includes picture books and board books for the under-5s, fiction and highly-commended non-fiction books that seek to spark a child’s imagination about our world.

Books are powerful. In the hands of a skilled author they give us a wonderful insight into the world, and in particular, they give children fantastic knowledge tools for the future. I am proud to serve children. In every project, I strive hard to engage them and give them an enjoyable reading experience.
