Katie Daynes

Katie Daynes has written oodles of books for Usborne, from lifting the flaps on germs and poo, through things to spot in the sea and at school, to the life stories of Nelson Mandela and Marie Antoinette. She wrote My First Chess Book after being taught by her son, Joe Birks, who became the British Under 9 Chess Champion in 2017. She now lives in Yorkshire with her architect husband, two inquisitive children and a hamster called Toffee. When she’s not writing books, Katie likes walking on the blustery moors, meeting friends for coffee and playing competitive board games.

Press Reviews

A good way to intrigue children and to get them guessing even before they lift the flap... the illustrations are both entertaining and informative, and the text is written simply and clearly, with an added touch of humour. This is the age when children are constantly questioning - capitalise on it by getting them a copy of this super book.
