The Blue Giant
An entertaining and beautiful eco-tale from the winner of the Batsford Prize
Meera and her mum are enjoying a break at the seaside. Until…
…a creature emerges from the waves. It’s a giant. A blue giant. It has a stirring plea to help clean up the ocean and save the sea creatures from the menace of plastic waste.
Meera and her mum agree to help. But they can’t do it alone… can they?
A poignant and timely picture book that introduces children to the issues of pollution, waste management and the oceans, with suggestions of lifestyle changes to help the world become a better, cleaner place.
'Katie’s powerful images convey the plastic pollution problem in a manner that young children will easily relate to, particularly those of the sea creatures caught up in the debris ... a great way to galvanise youngsters into action.'
'Delivers a powerful and timely message ... With its rich, painterly seaside and deep-sea scenes, this is very beautiful, and very memorable.'
