'A light-hearted book about photosynthesis sounds impossible, but A Leaf in
Time does it beautifully. The importance of plants to life on Earth is
traced from the origins of life to today's need for renewable energy, all
told in a way that makes the story compelling and readable. A group of 9-11
year-olds sat down and discussed photosynthesis after reading it - surely a
sign that this book is doing its job' --Nature.

'A Leaf in Time' (1) has been translated into Spanish by Raquel Gonzalez (2)
who is, at this very moment, also working on a translation of 'Like
Clockwork'. Both the English and Spanish versions of 'A Leaf in Time' are
now available at Biosphere 2 (3)
