The Lovereading4Kids comment
The fascination of fossils and what they tell of a world long gone by is beautifully portrayed in this biography of Mary Anning, the best known fossil hunter. Brought up in Lyme Regis where fossils abound, from childhood on Mary was skilled at searching out prized finds such as fossilised sea monsters and an Ichthyosaurus, one of the most important finds of her day.
Stone Girl Bone Girl by Laurence Anholt
Mary Anning, born in England in 1799, made an astounding discovery at age 12 when she unearthed the first full skeleton of a giant ichthyosaur in the cliffs above her home in Lyme Regis. This incident -- in which she was helped by a little dog she rescued from a cemetery -- was the beginning of a long career that saw Mary become the world's best-known fossil hunter. Best-selling author Laurence Anholt turns Mary's fascinating life into a perfect read-aloud, while Sheila Moxley's luscious pictures vividly evoke the coastal setting and dramas of Mary's exciting life.
