"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.'
