Green Poems for a Blue Planet is the first major collection of family oriented green poetry - a collection of poems penned by 'The UK's Green Poet' Martin Kiszko and illustrated by four-time Oscar winning Wallace and Gromit creator Nick Park.
This enhanced edition, exclusive to iBooks, includes videos of three of the poems, 'Takeaway Carbon', 'Poo Power' and 'The Board of Butterflies at the Annual Moth Meeting', dramatically read by the poet himself and backed by more of Nick Park's amazing illustrations.
Witty, whimsical, and thought-provoking, here are 56 poems which highlight the threat humankind poses to the future of the planet. The book explores what it means to be green (Or not!). From 'green queens' to lost whales and from football to 'poo power', Martin says "I hope this show will provoke a thought, raise a smile, start a conversation, spark an idea, spur us into action, or simply turn on a few 'green lights'."
Love it, fun but with a serious message, great illustrations and
love the video and sound stuff too. Seen Martin live as well which
adds another dimension to the content and its context
