Jane Chisholm

Jane has worked at Usborne Publishing for over 35 years, joining the publisher in Covent Garden – before the tourists came – where their offices looked onto the grand dining rooms of the Garrick Club. She grew up in the middle of a forest in Sussex, where she and her siblings spent their childhood building tree houses and pretending to be the Famous Five, and in cities all over the world from Berlin to Moscow to Singapore. Before university, she spent a year in southern Africa, mostly in Botswana, assisting the social worker in a small town and camping out in the Kalahari Desert.
A graduate in history, as Editorial Director at Usborne, she oversees a large team working on children’s books about absolutely everything.

There are many excellent world history books on the market, [but] this one is quite unique in its scope and presentation. Highly recommended for children.
