Charlotte Sebag-Montefiore’s fourth book is Riddles from the Sea – Who Am I? and it has just come out! After the success of her first two riddle books, Charlotte wrote another one: she said she likes verse, and she likes riddles as they ask questions, and answering questions is the uniquely human way we make sense of the world.

Her third book was a new departure for her into the fascinating world of dinosaurs. Charlotte says that her interest in dinosaurs springs from what they have in common with us, – for some were bipeds, and the fate of all hinged on climate change – which was completely beyond their control, just as Covid-19 is beyond our control. After many years of NHS work, Charlotte is donating all royalties from HERBIE AND THE T. REX to the NHS.
