Jess loves all animals. She loves the natural world they live in, too. She thinks it is very important that we all work hard to protect the natural world, so she writes books about how we can do that. The books are mainly marketed at a children, but Jess knows that it's mostly the grown ups that need educating. She hopes that the wonderful children that read her books will be kind enough to educate the silly grown ups they meet about animals, the environment and what we can do to save them.

As well as writing, Jess works as a vet. She once ultrasounded a snow leopard and has also looked inside a crocodile's stomach! She is sometimes seen on CBeebies talking about minibeasts and also works as a teacher for school groups that are interested in animals and the natural world.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 August 2020
I can't wait to read this to my class, it fits in so nicely with rainforest and animal themes, the illustrations are beautiful and I feel this message (slow down) is much needed in this lifetime.
Jess French uses playful language, this in my opinion is a lovely book, I will buy another for my sister's boys and look forward to reading it to my next class.
Highly recommended.
