Bestselling author Christopher Lloyd began his career as
a journalist with the Sunday Times newspaper. Then, while camping
with his family, he had a critical realisation: even with a 1st
class degree in history from Cambridge University and experience as
a science writer, there was so much about the world he didn't know.
So, he set out to write books that zoom out and tell the big
stories, opening readers' eyes to how seemingly unrelated events
fit together and showing them multiple perspectives on the world,
all in highly engaging prose and matched with lively illustration
and photography. Now, with several books in print, including the
bestselling What on Earth Happened? and Absolutely
Everything, Chris divides his time between writing books and
delivering lectures and workshops to schools, literary festivals,
and a wide range of other venues around the world. He lives in
Tonbridge, Kent, UK, with his wife and two adorable terriers.
Mark Ruffle studied graphic design and then worked as an art editor for Oxford University Press, before becoming a freelance illustrator and designer. When he's not drawing animals or spaceships, among other things, he enjoys walking his dogs and cycling in the Cotswolds, where he lives with his wife and two daughters.
interactive and entertaining... Highly recommended. -- Sandy
