Synopsis

Gordon the Wildlife Filmmaker by Mairi McLellan

Gordon the Wildlife Filmmaker is the sixth book of the series 'What do the grown-ups do?'. Based in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland, the series aims to teach children aged 5-10 years about different jobs. By writing through the eyes of the children, the tone is kept chatty and light-hearted as three local children meet real workers who explain their jobs. Gordon the wildlife filmmaker leads no ordinary existence! Travelling the world, he sees wild and wonderful creatures, capturing them on film to bring them to our television screens. He tells the children of his life in the wilderness - from camping in the snow to living in the rainforest. The children are mesmerised as he tells them of his most scary encounters, including a polar bear who wanted him for dinner! Other books in the series include: Joe the Fisherman, Papa the Stockfarmer, Sean the Actor, Fiona the Doctor and Richard the Vet.
