This is the intriguing real-life story of Mary Anning, the 'Fossil Girl of Lyme Regis'. Her discovery of a fossil of a fish lizard in 1807 hugely advanced geologists' knowledge of the prehistoric world. The story of her unusual childhood and her extraordinary life is told in a fascinating, child-friendly text by successful children's writer Laurence Anholt, who lives in Mary Anning's home town. The book is stylishly illustrated in glowing colour by young illustrator, Sheila Moxley.
Laurence Anholt is extremely well-known to booksellers and parents for his picture books, usually illustrated by himself or his wife Catherine, the most recent being A KISS LIKE THIS. Author lives- Lyme Regis
