It starts with a rumbling under foot. Then the ocean reaches for the sky and the land is lost to the sea. The water recedes and the soil becomes as dust. And all at once you realize the choices you’ve made are the reasons you have arrived at this end.
An environmentally charged and fully illustrated telling of what will happen if we do not curb our current abuses.

To paraphrase a line used by a UK political party in the recent election "If not now, then when ?"

This book's a great introduction for children to the mess we are making of our world, it speaks to them in a sensible "adult" way with some brilliant pictures, about the effects of pollution and wastage of natural resources, and what the final outcome could be if we do not change our ways

Which brings me back to the question the "Greens" posed in December last year, if we don't do something very soon

A world like ours is alive. We share it with the plants, animals, fish and insects. We share it. Every living thing is important to sustaining life as we know it ...

I'd liken this story to The Wump World, which is one of my all time favourite books, and the one that made me an environmentalist before I could even spell the word. Impressing upon everyone the fragility of our world and the damage that's being wrought by thoughtless greed is so, so important.

Bonus points for the use of the library

The story and pictures show an Angry Earth fighting back against everyone. The illustations are really well done. No one appears to know what is happening, why it is happening or how to solve the problem. While it is wonderful that the library survives, it does not have any helpful information. A young boy records information for the future but that information is also destroyed.

The summary explains how everything is interconnected and IMHO, the most important page in the book. While the last p

An Angry Earth offers a terrifying end to a world whose overseers abused its resources to live more comfortably until the Earth had nothing left to give. Each concurrent devastating natural disaster is recorded by a single child left to bear witness.

Conceived one evening when my eyes were too tired to continue reading any more of my daughter's books, I turned out the light and answered the call: "One more Daddy, please." I like to instil environmental awareness into my daughter. I think all chil

I'll admit that at first I was a bit skeptical of this concept. Could a children's picture book about the apocalypse and abuse of the planet possibly work without being too scary for kids or without being too preachy? But I must say that the author overall did a good job with this book. The illustrations are great, and the text, while serious and at times brutally honest, does make important points about taking care of the earth and the dangers we face if we don't in terms that kids can understa ...more
