In this book from the critically acclaimed, multimillion-copy bestselling Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the life of David Attenborough, the inspiring broadcaster and conservationist.

Little David grew up in Leicester on the campus of a university, where his father was a professor. As a child, he spent hours in the science library, collating his own specimens and creating a mini animal museum. When he was old enough to go to university, he studied science and zoology – but what he wanted most of all was to be close to the animals he was studying.

So, he started working in television, visiting animals in their natural habitats and telling the world the untold stories of these animals. Little David went on to become one of the most celebrated environmentalists on the planet, teaching generation after generation about the importance of the natural world.

This book is about a very famous person that you might have heard of, the wildlife presenter and author Sir David Attenborough.
On the cover of this book we have a picture of David Attenborough as a child. He's holding a pair of binoculars in one hand and looking at a butterfly that is perched on the finger of his other hand. To the left of David's hand is a tiny but beautiful creature that lives in the sea. Its a seahorse!
On this double page David is on a safari in Africa. David is half buried in a mound of sand and he is surrounded by meercats. He's watching them to learn all about them.
It's a very important occasion on this double page picture; David is receiving a knighthood from Queen Elizabeth the 2nd. This means that he will be called Sir David.
