In this book from the critically acclaimed, multimillion-copy bestselling Little People, BIG DREAMS series, meet Rosalind Franklin, the scientist who was crucial to the discovery of the double helix in DNA.

Little Rosalind was born in London to a Jewish family who valued education and public service. Having studied physics and chemistry at Cambridge University, Rosalind moved to Paris to perfect her life’s work in X-ray crystallography. She then moved back to King’s College London, where she would work on finding the structure of DNA with Maurice Wilkins. After a fallout, Maurice used Rosalind’s “photo 51” to create a DNA model with Francis Crick. Rosalind’s contribution was not acknowledged until after her death. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the brilliant scientist’s life.

Little People, BIG DREAMS is a bestselling series of books that explore the lives of outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists and activists. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream.
