When Joan was a little girl she was fascinated by lizards, snakes, turtles and crocodiles. When Joan grew up, her passion took here to London’s Natural History Museum where she became the first female curator at the Reptile House. For budding scientists and any child who has a passion, this is an inspiring story about following a dream, even if it seems unlikely to succeed.
