Mary Anning, born in England in 1799, made an astounding discovery at
age 12 when she unearthed the first full skeleton of a giant
ichthyosaur in the cliffs above her home in Lyme Regis. This incident --
in which she was helped by a little dog she rescued from a cemetery --
was the beginning of a long career that saw Mary become the world's
best-known fossil hunter.
Best-selling author Laurence Anholt
turns Mary's fascinating life into a perfect read-aloud, while Sheila
Moxley's luscious pictures vividly evoke the coastal setting and dramas
of Mary's exciting life.
