"When Sue Found Sue: Sue Hendrickson Discovers Her T.Rex" by Toni Buzzeo and Diana Sudyka (Abrams Young Readers)

Some folk have a burning desire within them that's almost impossible to supress. For Sue Hendrickson, that desire was to find things - and in "When Sue found Sue" by Toni Buzzeo and Diana Sudyka, Diana makes one of the most important palaeontological discoveries of the past two centuries.

This charming picture book chronicles the early life of Sue Hendrickson and how her interest in the natural world, and her boundless curiosity as a child enabled her to become one of the world's leading experts on dinosaurs.

In 1990, at a dig in South Dakota, Sue made her biggest discovery to date: Sue the T. rex, the largest and most complete T. rex skeleton ever unearthed. 

Named in Sue’s honor, Sue the T. rex would be placed on permanent exhibition at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. 

When Sue Found Sue inspires readers to take a closer look at the world around them and to never lose their brave, adventurous spirits. 

Fuel for the imagination - Sue's boundless curiosity began in her childhood. 
After all, it's a huge huge world and there's still plenty of things to discover so hopefully this book will inspire kids who look at the ground or perhaps the seas and wonder what's going on underneath. 

Under the sea, under the sea there's lots to see!

Sum this book up in a sentence: A brilliant chronicle of Sue's life, and a hugely inspirational book for kids who have boundless curiosity like her. 

"When Sue Found Sue" by Toni Buzzeo and Diana Sudyka is out now, published by Abrams Young Readers (kindly supplied for review).
