The Wishing Shelf Book Awards

5 stars

Footnotes throughout and a final epilogue offer helpful scientific explanations and practical solutions. The reader is left understanding the gravity of the situation without being led into dispair. Polo is an attractive, inspiring character who can be introduced to students as a messenger of various voices about the current world emergency for which we are all responsible. Looking forward to exploring Part Two and Three!

5 stars

Aimed at secondary school students but should be required reading for politicians and decision makers at every level. Charming characterisations and great drawing introduce the myriad of oft unrecognised ways in which we are contributing to the climate chaos we face. Just wish we could make it required reading!
