'A Leaf in Time'  --photosynthesis, global climate change and the like, for
9-11 year olds

"Seldom have I encountered a text so simple yet so thoroughly informative
and in its best sense, instructive". Books for Keeps

'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' has recently been translated into Spanish by Raquel
Gonzalez who is, at this very moment, also working on a translation of 'Like
Clockwork'. The English version of 'A Leaf in Time' is now available at
Biosphere 2


 and ŒUNA HOJA A TRAVÉS DEL TEMPO¹ should follow it there shortly. If you
