Planet in Peril (Horrible Geography Series) by Anita Ganeri

Published by Scholastic, 2009.

At this time of year when we make our New Year resolutions there are several earth-saving suggestions for children (and adults too) in a recent book from the Horrible Geography series called Planet in Peril.

Written by Anita Ganeri and illustrated by Mike Phillips the Horrible Geography books are a hugely successful spin-off from Terry Deary’s Horrible Histories.

Printed without costing the Earth, as declared on the cover, Planet in Peril will tell you how to build a robot that converts dead flies into electricity!, why eating crisps is bad news for orang-utans and why giving up baths is good news for the planet. You are also guaranteed to get a geography lesson with the gritty bits left in.

Our planet is in peril and you can help to sort it out. If you’re wondering how, you’ll find plenty of ideas in this bumper handbook of helpful hints. Reduce your carbon footprint, rubbish away your waste in an environmentally-friendly way and as you become armed with loads of earth-saving tips you will realize that you too can help save the planet.
