Out today: "Greta and the Giants" by Zoe Tucker and Zoe Persico (Frances Lincoln Children's Books)

Greta Thunberg's "Strike for Climate" has been one of the most inspirational things to emerge from the veritable train wreck of 2019. Understandably, her voice is shaping the way people think about the climate, their own efforts to help preserve it, and what big companies should be doing to offset their carbon footprint.

In "Greta and the Giants" by Zoe Tucker and Zoe Persico, Greta is the inspiration for a brilliant character facing off against giants who are ruining the forest for all the people and animals living there.

Greta loves nature, and though she's small, she's determined to stand up to the giants, make her tiny voice heard, and enlist the help of others to make a stand against the ruination of the natural world around her.

Presented here as a story for younger readers, both Zoes have pulled all the stops out to make this book as attractive, compelling and alluring as possible without diluting the core message - that the natural world deserves our protection and we should do all we can to preserve it.

Let's take a look inside at the gorgeous page spreads in this amazing book:

Sum this book up in a sentence: A beautifully woven story taking Greta Thunberg's epic climate battle as the inspiration for a fictional story around preserving nature and the environment.
