Overview

This captivating picture book tells the true story of 10-year-old Mary Anning who, nearly 200 years ago, discovered the first complete fossil of an Ichthyosaurus, or fish lizard, now in the Natural History Museum. Single-minded Mary wants to find a really special fossil for her father's shop, and when she sees a huge eye staring out of the cliff face she resolves to bring the creature down, whatever the risk. This spectacular tale of a little girl who became the world's most famous fossil-hunter will inspire and motivate young dinosaur fans!
