Stone Girl Bone Girl: The Story of Mary Anning

Amazon.com Rating:

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.

Description

"Pleasing folk-art views spread across the pages in luscious blues and greens, magenta, and pumpkin, following the plucky child's odyssey that led to her lifelong contribution to paleontology.... The author provides a short closing note on Anning's place in science and also claims that she is the inspiration of the traditional rhyme 'she sells seashells by the seashore.'" -- School Library Journal
