Waterstones Says

The life and work of our greatest living naturalist is given the exquisite Little People, Big Dreams treatment with simple text and bold illustration highlighting David Attenborough’s incredible story for younger readers.

In this book from the critically acclaimed, multimillion-copy bestselling Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the life of David Attenborough, the inspiring broadcaster and conservationist.

Little David grew up in Leicester on the campus of a university, where his father was a professor. As a child, he spent hours in the science library, collating his own specimens and creating a mini animal museum. When he was old enough to go to university, he studied science and zoology - but what he wanted most of all was to be close to the animals he was studying. So, he started working in television, visiting animals in their natural habitats and telling the world the untold stories of these animals.

This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the broadcaster's life.

Little People, BIG DREAMS is a bestselling series of books and educational games that explore the lives of outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists and activists. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream.

Inspire the next generation of outstanding people who will change the world with Little People, BIG DREAMS!

"The kind of books that adults will covet and collect as well... The language and structure is simple enough for young readers, while a biographical timeline at the end of each book offers greater historical complexity" * Irish Times *
'These books are designed with admirable simplicity... the difficult, often traumatic detail of an entire life is distilled with tremendous skill into its essence; the result is age-appropriate for yet unpatronising to five-year-olds, and hums with a sense of transgressive inspiration'
* The Times Literary Supplement *
'One of a series of illustrated biographies designed for young readers, this describes naturalist David Attenborough's life-long passion for and concern about looking after the natural world.' * Bishop's Stortford Independent *
'Strikingly illustrated, they're superb first biographies for younger readers.'
* Huffington Post *
"We were utterly charmed by this stylish book." * The Evening Standard *
