Seb and Polly Planet on their Ocean Quest is an adventure packed illustrated chapter book from Michelle Cassar aimed at children aged 5+ which empowers kids to PALL: Plastic A Lot Less.
Through the magical adventures of daring Seb, children learn about the effects of plastic pollution, and more importantly it enlightens them to simple and practical ideas on how they can PALL to help prevent it. So they can implement these simple solutions in their daily lives – and that of their carers.
With an emphatic, strong female superhero character (plus narwhals, a leatherback turtle and albatrosses!) showing Seb the way, she’s taught how to overcome the challenges she faces and learns the difference she is making.
The book also shares fun facts about the animals featured in the story as well as providing great solutions that all children can get on board with. With beautiful illustrations by Eve Bourrat, this book makes the perfect gift for anyone over the age of five!
Published in 2019 in Weston-Super-Mare. UK by Maxwell House Printers using vegetable-based inks on lithographic presses. The natural ingredients in the inks are less harmful to both the environment and the staff handling them. Vegetable-based inks also help with the recycling process, as they are easier to remove from recycled paper and print during the de-inking process of recycling.
"This beautifully written book captivates the hearts and minds of those who read it by telling the stories of the wildlife that is suffering from the results of our addiction to single-use plastics - but most importantly it gently tells its readers exactly how they can become part of the solution. Make way for a new superhero!" Jo Ruxton, founder and Director of Plastic Oceans UK
