This is an important book but we don't have time for its young readers to replace those in power. So read this book and then give grown-ups hell and demand something be done. It's your future that's at stake.
Illustrations of how these areas might look underwater stress the importance of taking action now, while the cheery design and bright palette help lighten up the heavy proceedings ... An engaging, lively addition to nonfiction collection on a timely, increasingly urgent topic.
The design, by Belle Wuthrich … blends a mix of upbeat illustrations (including an irresistible surfing bunny) with somewhat alarming photoshopped images of waterlogged cityscapes
