Isn’t it amazing that in the whole solar system, and perhaps the entire universe, there is just one planet where life can exist and we live on it? The earth is unique and beautifully complex and this is why I love writing about it. Through my books, I aim to encourage children to explore how the world works and to take positive actions to protect our planet for future generations.
In 2011, I was extremely honoured to receive the Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize for my first pop-up book ‘How the Work Works’. The winning book was selected by the readers themselves – 1,000 young people from all around the UK. It is truly uplifting to see how children’s books about the planet we live on still have a place in our high-tech digital world.
