The Last Straw – Kids Vs Plastic – Out NOW

I got to illustrate this awesome book about young eco-activists with ingenious ideas how to save the planet/us from our plastic waste! It’s written by award-winning author Susan Hood, and has received brilliant reviews already…

“Thoughtful and thought-provoking, this book will plant the seeds of environmental activism in young readers.” —Kirkus (starred review)

In this factually augmented poetry collection, Hood illuminates the reasons, repercussions, and remedies for humans’ considerable use of plastic….Engel’s vivid, inclusive digital illustrations bolster this appealingly accessible picture book. — Publishers Weekly

A breezy way of introducing ecology concepts and starting important conversations.
— Booklist

“I encourage everyone to read this book.” —Dr. Jane Goodall

There’s no doubt about it—plastic is in almost everything. From our phones and computers to our toys and utensils, plastic is everywhere. But the amount of plastic we throw away is hurting the health of our planet.

With The Last Straw: Kids vs. Plastics, readers will be fascinated as they learn about the growing plastic problem and meet just a few of the young activists who are standing up and speaking out for change.
