Stone Girl Bone Girl
Laurence Anholt, Sheila Moxley
Discover the story of Mary Anning, the world’s best-known fossil hunter.
As a baby, Mary was struck by lightning, then as a little girl she found a fossilised sea monster, the most important prehistoric discovery of its time. This spectacular tale of a little girl who dared to be different and who followed her dreams will inspire young children.
Beautiful illustrations and narrative text help children to learn how Mary discovered new fossils – and how her observations rocked the natural history world. Be inspired by Mary’s work as a woman in the field of science – especially as her achievements weren’t recognised until after her death.
Perfect for kids interested in dinosaurs and rocks, and for parents looking for strong female role models in science.

An enjoyable story. The somewhat cartoon-like illustrations - making beautiful use of rich colours that saturate the page - may appeal to slightly younger readers.
