About the Author

Mick Manning (born in Yorkshire, England, 1959) and Brita Granström (born in Eskilstuna, Sweden, 1969) work together as a team sharing the illustration and text. They have been producing award-winning non-fiction picture books for almost twenty years. They show that the best non-fiction for children can be scholarly, albeit with a light touch, and can have some of the imagination-stretching qualities of fiction. They are well known for their exciting performances involving readings and live drawing using overhead camera projection (often involving participation from members of the audience) all mixed with an audio-visual presentation. They appear on a regular basis at major UK book festival venues such as Bath, Cheltenham and Edinburgh International Book Festival. They have appeared at The Royal Society Science Festival and have celebrated The Big Draw at various venues including The Imperial War Museum. They have worked closely to support libraries and schools, performing voluntarily to school classes in the UK and Sweden. Most recently they visited the American Library Association Conference, Texas where they also visited a Hispanic school and libraries in the area. Many of Manning & Granström's books are translated into a number of languages, including Chinese, German, Greek, Danish, Japanese, Norwegian, Swedish and Slovakian. For the last 12 years Mick & Brita have created, written and illustrated a monthly 5-page gentle pre-school series called 'Max and Kate' for the critically acclaimed US children's magazine Ladybug. http://www.mickandbrita.com Selection of Franklin Watts books: The World Is Full of Babies!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book from wonderwise 4 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback
I just love these books. Wonderwise has a collection of these informative books and this one is just as good as all the others. I bought it for my three year old son who loves information books but my other children ( 8 and 12) have also enjoyed and learnt from these books, and so have I, love them.

5.0 out of 5 stars English Language Learners 20 Jun 2008
By Ana Lado - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is good for school-age English Language Learners (ELLs). The illustrations, map, glossary, and patterned text provide context which clarifies the text. The repetition of the question, "What would be higher?" makes it easy for beginners. It is rare to find books with easy English about an academic subjects for school-age beginner ELLs and this is one.
