About the Book: The blue planet is wild, beautiful, dangerous and exciting. It is a place where children spend their days playing, climbing, laughing, telling stories and exploring. However, it is a place so full of danger and excitement, that no adult dares to set foot on the planet. That is until one day, Mr Goodday lands on the planet. He promises the children even more fun, even more excitement and assures them he can make all their dreams come true. It won’t even cost the children that much…Just a small percentage of their youth…
Reasons for Selection: The Story of the Blue Planet is full of beautiful illustrations and is an eccentric, funny, charming and dark read that manages to be thought-provoking on many levels. This lyrical environmental fable deals with themes of greed, friendship, sacrifice and trust. The story could be read with older children and is a good choice if you have a mixed age class as there is potential for looking at political systems as well as the strong ecological message.
