I’m super excited to reveal the cover of ‘Why is Blood Red?’, my latest book, published by DK in March 2021.
It was commissioned before we knew there would be a pandemic. I planned and wrote it through lockdown. I found it incredibly hard to be motivated but I got there, one weekly deadline at a time until it was finished. I’m proud of this book and I hope children will love finding out about their brilliant bodies as they read it.
Big thanks to everyone involved including my lovely editor at DK books, Katie Lawrence. Thanks to the DK design team in India and to consultants including those at the Smithsonian museum in the USA. And thanks to Lindsey my agent at Fraser Ross Associates.
