The Book of Stone

Author: Mark Greenwood

Illustrator: Coral Tulloch

Publisher: Walker Books

Mark Greenwood is skilled at bringing historical events to life for young readers. In The Book of Stone we are reminded that even a stone has a story to tell: ‘an echo of time … the memory of a place where wonder is found.’ Greenwood’s lyrical text and Tulloch’s mixed media illustrations present the background stories for the stones collected in this book. All your favourites are here – from prehistoric stone tools, meteorites, fossils and ammonites, to crystals, birthstones, gemstones and much more. The book itself is a visual delight – with the debossed front cover resembling an engraved slab of stone, and every double page spread themed around a particular stone. The endpapers give budding geologists a peek into an illustrated stone collection, complete with identification labels and scientific details. Primary school readers of all ages will find this picture book captivating.
