James Maclaine - Author

About the Author

James Maclaine studied Classics at Oxford before joining Usborne Publishing in 2010. He never realised that reading Latin and Greek for all those years would lead to writing books about animals, coming up with drawing, doodling and colouring ideas, and setting puzzles, but he’s ever so glad they did.
