I am Vanessa Harbour, children's author, an academic and bionic woman (according to my grandson!). Take a trip around my website where you could find out about my books or about me and the things I get up to. There are resources for teachers and fun stuff for readers to do.


Go on a trip through the website - just like Jakob and Kizzy did in Flight. See where you end up!
