Little People, Big Dreams: Mary Anning

A delightfully engaging children's book about the pioneering palaeontologist and daring fossil-hunter Mary Anning, written by Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara and illustrated by Poppy Matigot.


Born in 1799 in Lyme Regis, Mary would often help her amateur fossil-hunter father to comb for shells and bones on the beach and cliffs, and in 1823 was the first to discover the complete skeleton of Plesiosaurus.


With its quirky illustrations, interesting facts and historical timeline, this lovely hardback is a wonderful way to introduce young adventurers to science and prehistory.
