Tom gets to write about a wide range of subjects, everything from axolotls to zoroastrianism. However, his specialties are natural history, technology and all things scientific. Tom spends his days finding fun ways of communicating these kinds of facts, new and old, to all age groups and reading abilities.

Tom has also worked as a conservationist, which saw him planting trees in Somerset, surveying Vietnamese jungle and rescuing wildlife from drought-ridden Zimbabwe. Writing jobs have also taken him to the Galápagos Islands, the Amazon rain forest, the coral reefs of Indonesia and the Sahara Desert. Nowadays, he can be found mainly in the attic.

Excellent! My 1.5 and 3.5 year olds love to pick a page for me to read through. This book now accompanies us on every visit to the zoo.

4.0 out of 5 stars For my Daughter 16 May 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my daughter to help teach her about animals. The only criticism I have about these books are that they seem to be laid out in a very chaotic fashion, which to me is confusing, I'm not sure how a child feels about it. It serves the purpose it was intended for.
