The fourth book in a series about scientific wonder. Dreaming, daring, thinking, and doing. For little researchers ages 6 years and up.
The early nineteenth century. Mary Anning is only twelve years old when she discovers her first dinosaur skeleton while looking for fossils to sell. It isn't just any skeleton; it's the first almost complete Ichthyosaurus ever found. Over the next few years, more dinosaurs follow. Although Mary doesn't get admitted to a university, her research would later form the basis for developing the theory of evolution, which made Mary one of the most important paleontologists in history.
