Dinosaur author Nicky Dee joins the fun at the Gloworm Festival 2017

Dedicated dinosaur fan and children’s educational author Nicky Dee will be joining the fun at the Gloworm Family Friendly Festival at Clumber Park, Nottinghamshire on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th August 2017.

Having fallen under the spell of these perennially popular, prehistoric creatures seven years ago, Nicky Dee has become so obsessed that she's changed her career, and now writes children's books about dinosaurs full-time.

The highly collectable, brightly coloured books in the ‘What’s so Special about Dinosaur?’ series are 100% up to date, backed up by the latest dinosaur research and packed full of illustrations and insights into how these creatures looked, lived, survived and thrived during the time when dinosaurs ruled the world.

Nicky Dee will be at the Gloworm Festival on Saturday (19th) and Sunday (20th) August, running a series of workshops during which children will get the chance to ask questions, share facts about their favourite dinosaurs and handle some very impressive fossils – including a giant T. rex tooth!

As well as writing about individual dinosaurs Nicky Dee also writes children’s books which tackle some of the bigger dinosaur topics like the Extinction Theories and the Descendants of the Dinosaurs.
