Book award

Somewhat belated, Dorling Kindersley have informed me that I shared, along with other authors of Oceans: The World's Last Wilderness Revealed, in the 2008 Louis J Battan Author's Award K-12 Category, presented by the American Meteorlogical Society – and I have just received a very handsome certificate to prove it!.

The judges described the book as "a concise yet comprehensive introduction to all components of the ocean system". This is the second book award I have received, after receiving the German Environmental Prize for Children's and Young People's Literature for my Young Oxford Book of Ecology in 2001, and it is a great honour.

You can order either book through the Amazon links on the home page of this website.
