What is this picture book about?
Did you know that Mother Nature's home - our beautiful planet - is more than 4.5 billion years old? And in the years gone by, our planet was full of so much colour and so much wonder. But recently, Mother Nature has started to feel a little tired and more than a little worried ... that was, until YOU came along.
Described as one the most important children's books to be released this century, this uplifting, exuberant and empowering book encourages all little ones to do their bit to help protect everything that makes our planet so special.
"This is one of a handful of children’s books whose title will remain famous for decades." - Book Riot
"Alvin Mulyono’s illustrations have a depth to them that entices the reader into the pages further—the artwork radiates in all the right places." - The Children's Book Review
An excerpt from the story
There was once an old lady called Mother Nature. She lived in the mountains and she swam in the streams, and she brewed all the colours that I saw in my dreams.
She was tall and wide, and had trees for her thighs, and she listened and listened to the skies and the tide. She could jump between mountains and turn waterfalls to fountains, and she could swim in the sea much deeper than me.
She could run faster than leopards and protect sheep like the shepherds, and yet she cried like the tide as the planet died at her side.
She pleaded to the people to not litter the seas, and she asked them kindly to not fell the trees.
She shielded the animals from the hunters and thieves, and she begged them to leave the whales in the seas.
She soaked up the sun as its burning begun, and she tried and tried as her home slowly died.
But then YOU came running up by her side!
“Let’s save the planet!” you cried, as the animals cheered far and wide, and the trees stood up taller, side by side...
