Stone Girl Bone Girl

Publisher: Frances Lincoln

Review

Mary Anning lives near the cliffs at Lyme Regis and from an early age her beloved father, Pepper, shows her how to look for fossils, or 'curiosities' in the rocks.

Mary is fascinated by these treasures waiting to be discovered, and her dream comes true when she discovers the greatest treasure of all, a fossilised sea monster.

Laurence Anholt takes the real story of fossil hunter Mary Anning and creates a beautiful story, accompanied by vivid illustrations that perfectly evoke the colours and textures of the beach and coast. This book is a treasure in itself.
