What a Shell Can Tell

The wonders of shells through the art of observation

I’m delighted to announce my next book for children, a collaboration with artist Sonia Pulido as we explore the world of shells. Science meets art in this beautifully illustrated guide to observing nature.

What a Shell Can Tell is the perfect book for young explorers, collectors, and nature lovers everywhere.

Through a richly sensory experience, we explore the incredible diversity of shells around the world and showcase the environments molluscs inhabit. From what a shell’s shape, colour, or texture can reveal about its inhabitant, to where shells are found (from the deepest seas to jungly treetops), readers can get up close with nature to observe its wonders.

What a Shell Can Tell is published by Phaidon in June 2022 and is available to pre-order.
