Traveling the world to learn about climate change is dangerous work: after braving the perils of the African savanna, a journey down the River Nile takes Captain Polo into Egypt and beyond. Polo's final challenge involves breaking out of London Zoo, where he makes his first encounter with the most unlikely of companions...

Today's climate emergency is nothing short of an existential crisis threatening life on Earth as we know it. The uncertain future is the cause of increasing anxiety, particularly among the younger generations. Book 3 in this series of educational adventure comics complements the previous two books to provide yet deeper insight on the causes, effects and solutions to climate change within the framework of a fast-paced fiction story packed with action, humour and exotic settings.

'Captain Polo's Climate Change Classroom', a section at the end of the book that defines some of the more technical terms and concepts explored in the story offers a valuable resource for all readers to enhance their understanding and ability to take action as agents of change.

Originally a lonely and confused polar bear, Captain Polo has undergone a life-changing transformation. Get your copy of Polo in East Africa to find out what it is!
