Overview

This is the fascinating story of Mary Anning, probably the world's best known fossil-hunter. As a baby, Mary was struck by lightening, then as a little girl she found a fossilised sea monster, the most important prehistoric discovery of its time. The spectacular tale of a little girl who dared to be different and who followed her dreams will inspire young children - especially those who love dinosaurs!
