Gill Lewis on writing about animals and the environment

Gill Lewis joined us on ReadingZone Live to talk about her latest novel, Gorilla Dawn, a gripping adventure story that is also a plea from the author to protect our fragile ecosystems.

Gorilla Dawn explores the impact that illegal mining - for the minerals used in making mobile phones - is having on the environment in West Africa, which is home to endangered gorillas.

During this event, Gill tells us more about her books, writing about animals and how her background as a vet helps inform her stories.

She also shared with children more about the research she did for this book and how she goes about researching for her stories and how she uses it in her books.
