Ruth Brocklehurst

When she wasn’t out riding her bike or making things out of loo rolls and scraps of fabric, Ruth Brocklehurst spent much of her childhood reading – especially historical novels and whodunits. Since joining Usborne in 2000, she has written and edited countless books on everything from craft activities and history, to creative writing, space exploration and dinosaurs. If she could go back in time she’d like to meet Mary Queen of Scots.

Reader Reviews

A good read
This is a brilliant book with lots of information. I especially liked reading the bit about trains and their development. I definitely recommend it!
