Nature’s most deadly
As the human population grows, how do we live alongside deadly animals? How have we treated them in the past? What are the new ethical issues? I found this a really thought-provoking book to research and write. Published by OUP for the Project X series.
Tour de France
I was surprised no one had written a book for children about this amazing event. Many kids love bikes and races, and this is the biggest bike race of them all. I teamed up with top British cyclist Geraint Thomas to mix in a real rider’s experience with the information. Published by Collins in the Big Cat series.
