Synopsis

The Ultimate Book About Me in Association with the Science Museum, London by Richard Platt

Am I really unique? Why do I look like my grandma but not my mum? Is my brain just a wet computer? How long will I live? For answers to these questions and many, many more, this ultimate guide will set you straight. Grounded in genetics, identity and brain science, it's all about you and what makes you who you are. Find out the facts, tackle the quizzes and try out the home experiments as you embark on a fascinating journey of self-discovery!

About the Author

Richard Platt

As an artist
I've written about 60 books, mostly factual books for children. My first children's book was Incredible Cross Sections, which had fantastic illustrations by Stephen Biesty. One of the things I enjoy most about writing is that it gives me the chance to work with wonderful illustrators. When Chris Riddell drew the pictures for Castle Diary and Pirate Diary he managed to capture the characters of all the people in the stories exactly as I'd imagined them. I also love writing because people pay me to find out all this fascinating stuff about strange, wacky and obscure subjects. I spend far more time than I should trying to find amazing facts that bring a subject to life. I trawl through books at home (I've got 2500) and in dusty libraries.
