As a child, he spent hours in the science library, collating his own specimens and creating a mini animal museum. When he was old enough to go to university, he studied science and zoology - but what he wanted most of all was to be close to the animals he was studying. So, he started working in television, visiting animals in their natural habitats and telling the world the untold stories of these animals.

Reviews

"The kind of books that adults will covet and collect as well... The language and structure is simple enough for young readers, while a biographical timeline at the end of each book offers greater historical complexity" * Irish Times *
'These books are designed with admirable simplicity... the difficult, often traumatic detail of an entire life is distilled with tremendous skill into its essence; the result is age-appropriate for yet unpatronising to five-year-olds, and hums with a sense of transgressive inspiration'
* The Times Literary Supplement *
'One of a series of illustrated biographies designed for young readers, this describes naturalist David Attenborough's life-long passion for and concern about looking after the natural world.' * Bishop's Stortford Independent *
'Strikingly illustrated, they're superb first biographies for younger readers.'
* Huffington Post *
