In contrast to Laurence Anholt’s interpretation of Mary Anning’s life, this picture book focuses more specifically on the episode in which she finds the icthyosaur. The text is briefer and the comic strip style illustrations convey the light and colour of a seaside town. Mary is portrayed as a more independent character in this version.
