This captivating book for children and adults alike goes beyond being just informative - the bonkers inventions and grand ambitions may be mind-bending, but they are 'totally doable', and we heartily recommend this book for readers of any age looking for a hopeful, proactive perspective on climate change.
For the illustration lovers amongst us, you'll love the intense detail and the graphic novel-esque approach. A wonderfully unique book to spend hours poring over. See some internals below!
