I am a science writer, children's book author and journalist for children's science magazines Whizz Pop Bang and The Week Junior Science+Nature. I also write for outreach projects such as Oxford University’s Parents for STEM Futures, inspiring children from diverse backgrounds to pursue science careers.
With more than 150 published titles, there is a book in my repertoire to delight every child, from the lyrical and atmospheric Moth: An Evolution Story and the quirky Little Guides to Great Lives series, to the irreverent This Book is Not Rubbish and This Book Will (Help) Cool the Climate.
My **DIGITAL** talks and workshops
I love running creative, curriculum-linked events for schools, libraries and festivals. I have adapted two of my live events into action-packed virtual events, perfect for World Book Day week or science week celebrations!
What schools say
“Pupils enjoyed a VIP visit from author Ms Isabel Thomas, on World Book Day, who ran inspirational workshops and activities with the girls. Pre-prep pupils were captivated with story-telling.”
– St Mary’s School, Cambridge
"Thank you so much for your amazing hard work and preparation for the fantastic three events today. It was so lovely to see all the children and teachers enjoying it."
– Little Ealing Primary School, London
“We thoroughly enjoyed having you, and the children (and teachers) had a great time.”
– Kingshott School, Hitchin
“Even some of my reluctant writers have shown renewed enthusiasm for writing since.”
– St Peter’s School, St Albans
My fees for virtual visits
I have strived to make my virtual events super affordable for schools. Each virtual event is £50, including 20 to 30 minutes of personalized Q&A content.
