A shepherd-turned-science writer, Daniel Loxton is the Victoria-based editor of Junior Skeptic magazine as well as a picture book author for young children. After he wrote Evolution: How We and All Living Things Came to Be, he has written and illustrated a series called Tales of Prehistoric Life. In book two of that series, Plesiosaur Trouble, a flying reptile encounters a pack of tiny dinosaurs. For this story mixing digital illustrations with landscape photography, Loxton and his co-illustrator Jim W.W. Smith received the $5,000 Bolen Books Children's Book Prize in 2014.
