FRANCES LINCOLN CHILDREN'S BOOKS WILL PUBLISH THE FIRST FICTIONALIZED PICTURE BOOK INSPIRED BY GRETA THUNBERG
On Friday, September 27, 2019 millions of Canadians joined Greta Thunberg on the streets to demand climate justice! 🌎 We’re thrilled to announce Quarto Kids will be releasing the first fictionalized picture book for young readers inspired by the Greta’s story of global climate activism. Greta and the Giants will publish on 19 November 2019. It tells the story of a little girl who lives in a beautiful forest threatened by Giants until there is hardly any forest left. The animals beg her to do something. But how can one little girl be heard when the giants seem so powerful?
Told as an allegory, an additional section at the back includes information about Greta Thunberg's life, how readers can help her in her fight against the giants, as well as notes for teachers and parents.
Written by Zoe Tucker and illustrated by Zoë Persico, this book has an important message about caring for our planet. It’s printed on 100% recycled paper and when you buy a copy, you will be making a donation of 3% of the cover price to Greta Thunberg endorsed charities; Greenpeace in the UK and 350.org in the US,. ♻️
Greta Thunberg's team has approved the book and considers it "a valuable and interesting project".
