She loves tackling new subjects and making them come alive for young readers. So far she has written about everything from trucks and toilets to space and Churchill.
Nominated for the 2016 Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize, the judges said
“This book is exquisitely illustrated, a delight to look at, it’s the sort of thing that really intrigues young children. But it’s also really informative. What it has is the correct science and at the level that’s right for its young readers – and it’s beautiful to look at.”
