Description

Author: Patricia Valdez | Illustrator: Felicita Sala | Age: 3-8 | English | Page: 40 | Paperback | 21.8 x 0.6 x 28.1 cm


Back in the days of long skirts and afternoon teas, young Joan Procter entertained the most unusual party guests: slithery and scaly ones, who turned over teacups and crawled past the crumpets... While other girls played with dolls, Joan preferred the company of reptiles. She carried her favorite lizard with her everywhere - she even brought a crocodile to school!

When Joan grew older, she became the Curator of Reptiles at the Natural History Museum. She went on to design the Reptile House at the London Zoo, including a home for the rumored-to-be-vicious komodo dragons. There, just like when she was a little girl, Joan hosted children's tea parties - with her komodo dragon as the guest of honour.

With a lively text and vibrant illustrations, scientist and writer Patricia Valdez and illustrator Felicita Sala bring to life Joan Procter's inspiring story of passion and determination.

'Delectably stylish' SUNDAY TIMES

‘The illustrations by Felicita Sala are full of rich colour and telling details and bring this unusual book to glowing life.’ IRISH INDEPENDENT
