Claire Datnow The Adventures of The Sizzling Six, Eco mystery series for teens, by Claire Datnow, skillfully weaves an exciting adventure with an ecological mystery. This series will inspire kids to become wise stewards of our precious natural resources.

Roger Drouin This is a great list! I learned about some of these books when I was looking up other fellow environmental fiction authors as I completed my novel No Other Way.

Linda Giannelli A Being Darkly Wise
Just added my choice for environmental fiction and climate fiction. Truly a compelling novel and very insightful.I could not put it down, and the same was true for my friends who also read it.


message 4: by Paul (new)

Paul Collins Don't forget to check out climate fiction ('cli-fi') books too. Here's a link to a FB cli-fi group https://www.facebook.com/groups/32053...

Mckenzie Two others I can think of adding to this list: Silver Bay by Jojo Moyes and Skinny Dip by Carl Hiaasen

Jim D. People might want to read Saddam's Parrot--a provocative novel about elephants, one blabbermouth African Grey Parrot, and climate action.

Thumbnail:

Mischief is on the wing and perhaps deliverance for a flock of San Francisco, fringe-dwelling creatives. A precocious and rebellious African grey parrot lands on the shoulder of a San Francisco elephant whisperer and begins spouting about the Bush White House and Saddam Hussein, soon provoking a desperate, madcap blackmail.--The Publisher

You will travel to strange and wondrous places on the back of elephants and the ruffled feathers of Alex, Saddam's Parrot. Absurdity and Dada are on the cusp as a Nixon impersonator takes the stage at The Mirage in Vegas, and the author of Shock and Awe gently fondles Zooey, his favorite python. Peril quickens as a hijacked circus train steams across the Napa Valley and enters the scope of a deadly sniper.

Here's what Gar Smith, the noted environmental investigator at the Berkeley Daily Planet, had to say about it:
