Reviews

A highly topical book about the impact of climate change, delivered in a very simple way for very young readers. The Bookseller The message is gently delivered in a way that will make children aware of their responsibility, but also their power to change things. Michael Foreman's illustrations are eloquent as always, and glow with warmth and colour. Andrea Reece, LoveReading Foreman's treatment of a red-hot topic is powerfully affecting. Almost every day one hears on the news or reads of the adverse effects of climate change: only recently we heard that many children playing outside in their school breaks are breathing toxic fumes for instance, so his book is all the more timely. Likening the world to a patient subject to the diagnosis of two small children at play is a stroke of genius, and makes what is a global issue comprehensible to early years listeners.
