Synopsis

Nicolaus Copernicus by Sarah Ridley, Franklin Watts

Super Scientists are first biographies introducing some of the world's great scientists, simply retelling their lives and explaining why their work was important. Illustrated with archive images and photographs, the chronology of each lifetime is emphasised by a timeline that runs through the book. Nicolaus Copernicus tells the story of this key scientific figure - covering his origins as the son of a merchant through his education in Poland and Italy, his work in astronomy and mathematics, the development of his theories about the universe and his legacy today.

About the Author

Born in Suffolk, Sarah Ridley lives on the Suffolk/Essex border and is a writer and editor of educational books for children and young people. Recently, a life-long interest in history has led her to write books about the First World War, inspired by reading letters written by soldiers who served in the conflict. Brothers at War tells the story of uncovering the material held in her own family's archives. Dear Jelly sets letters written by soldier brothers to their younger sisters at its core. Teenage children keep Sarah busy when she isn't tied to her computer, and she relaxes by walking along river estuaries close to her home.
