    Author information

    Katie Daynes has written oodles of books for Usborne, from lifting the flaps on germs and poo, through things to spot in the sea and at school, to the life stories of Nelson Mandela and Marie Antoinette. She wrote My First Chess Book after being taught by her son, Joe Birks, who became the British Under 9 Chess Champion in 2017. She now lives in Yorkshire with her architect husband, two inquisitive children and a hamster called Toffee. When she’s not writing books, Katie likes walking on the blustery moors, meeting friends for coffee and playing competitive board games.

    Press reviews

    “This is a brilliant informative fun book to teach your little ones more about medicines, illnesses and germs. There was lots of facts about different types of germs and bugs and where they come from and how you get rid of them which is very useful to learn and teach my nearly 5 year old.”
