I'm Jake McGowan-Lowe and I am a bone collector, naturalist, blogger and author as seen on BBC's The One Show, Autumnwatch, Winterwatch, CBBC Wild and BBC Breakfast, appearing alongside Sir David Attenborough, Chris Packham, Nick Baker and Ben Garrod.
I am thirteen years old, and I live in a beautiful part of Scotland. I love walking, exploring, watching wildlife and collecting bones. I've been collecting bones since I was six, and I started blogging here in July 2009 when I was seven.
Every week I blog here about something new . Mostly it's about bones that I've found, but sometimes it's about animals and birds that I see on my walks. (You can read more about why I began blogging here, and my advice to other kids wanting to blog here.)
Jake's Bones: The book !
Like this blog ? Buy the book ! This blog and my collection led to a book deal for a brilliant childrens' book published by Octopus Publishing. It's now been published in the UK, Ireland, the USA, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea..
You can read more about how I got a book deal here, this is what it looks like, and where you can buy it !
