Penguins, gulls and puffins are all seabirds. Seabirds spend lots of time in the water. Some are great at fishing. Others steal food. Some seabirds fly over water searching for fish. Others can’t fly at all. Seabirds looks at how these weird, wild and wonderful birds survive on land and at sea.

I trained as a zoologist and zookeeper, and have been a children’s book author and presenter for over twenty years. Why do I write? Because it’s fun! What do I write about? Mostly my main interests – animals and the environment.
