Dinosaurs and All That Rubbish

Dinosaurs have taken over the Earth! They're stomping and stamping all over the place. Young readers will love finding out why in this classic environmental tale from best-selling author/illustrator Michael Foreman. A fable for our time, and as relevant today as it was when it was first published in 1972. less

The Unexpected Visitor

There was once a little fisherman. Every morning he would take his boat out into the wide sea . . . and wait, and wait.

Through their adventure together they rediscover a natural way of living, and lead the world to a sustainable future.

His classic cautionary tale is now available in an irresistible mini-edition, perfect for backpack or briefcase, for Arbor Day, Earth Day, and every day. less

Gary BuryTruthfully, I have 3 young kids so don’t get much time to read other than to my kids at bedtime.
