Getting any reader to grasp the urgency of our planet’s environmental threats, without reducing them to hopelessness and eco-anxiety is a mighty task. Hats off to the author – he strikes a fine balance. Morbid challenges like population growth, habitat loss and hunting are told in truth but are equally balanced with colourful, playful illustrations.
this book offers young readers a grounding in the problems facing the planet: pollution, endangered species, climate change, the peril of plastic and so on. It’s colourful, approachable, informative and fun but has a serious point to make. Start young to save the planet!
