Two of my nature books for children have been have been international bestsellers. An Anthology of Intriguing Animals has been sold in 21 territories. Wonders of Nature has been sold in 16 territories. It is amazing to receive notes and pictures from so many young people, who seem to adore the books, and to see teachers use them in school.

An Anthology of Intriguing Animals was one of the Guardian's Best Books of 2018. Wonders of Nature was featured as a Guardian Children's book of the month in 2019.

The Secret World of Plants was shortlisted in The Week Junior magazine's Children's Book of the Year Awards 2023. My latest books include Weird and Wonderful Nature (2023) and Odd Animals Out (2024).

Patrick Barkham of the Guardian interviewed me about children’s books on nature and the environment.

I have also written or contributed to many wildlife books for adults, including Animal Migration: Remarkable Journeys in the Wild.
