Let’s talk with kids about that connection with Nature that is precious and we must not lose!

Early Reading Fiction
Can recycling be creative? The amazing and funny Gugul?s will show us how this smart activity can become an adventure.
As everyone knows, an immense plastic island rotates lazily on itself in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. No one knows, however, that the Gugulùs have taken shape here: bizarre colorful little creatures, with plastic caps for hats, who use sandals and rubber ducks like rafts, plastic spoons and forks like spears, the only inhabitants of a world now deserted. Or at least, this is what they believe… The Gugulùs are geniuses of “creative recycling”. They live cheerful and happy, struggling as they can, but there are thousands of difficulties they encounter every day in this crazy, all-plastic world, including the poor reception of their neighbours, the rich Zigoli. But among the Gugulùs there are arrogant accumulators of plastia and guguzze (their currency). But there is also a group of dreamers, who think that somewhere there is still a world without plastic and they dream of finding it. Little heroes who try to clean up the island and fight in secret to free the animals imprisoned in plastic to recreate a new clean world!
Who better than her can teach us how to save the planet? A story not only about Greta, but also about all the others – girls and boys – who can follow her and become like her.
The story of the friendship between Astrid, an aspiring journalist, and Greta Thunberg, the environmental activist nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, who in a few months managed to enter the imagination of all of us as the «Environment Guardian». Astrid interviews Greta for her school blog. She wants to know more about her story. Thus, the story of her commitment to the climate is intertwined with her personal history, past and present, in a dialogue that evokes flashbacks about her childhood and useful information to understand the reasons for her struggle. The evocative text by Fulvia Degl’Innocenti and the sparkling illustrations by Francesca Rizzato make the book suitable for young readers aged 6+ and also for school programs focused on this topic.
