Once Upon Our Planet

By Vita Murrow
Illustrated by Aitch

Rewild bedtime with 12 stories

From the internationally best-selling storyteller, Vita Murrow, this illustrated treasury brings together a dozen original stories set in some of the last true wildernesses in the world, from the Arctic to the Amazon. Weaving established mythology with original storytelling, these epic earth tales tell of courage, friendship, and persistence, and explore our finely balanced relationship with Planet Earth.

  • 12 original stories set in diverse locations, each under pressure from climate change
  • Thought provoking themes, drawing on pre-existing folklore, which explore the complex bond between humankind and Planet Earth
  • Fully illustrated throughout with contemporary, folky illustrations by fashionable illustrator Aitch, whose clients include Soho House, Google and L’Occitane
