This burning story of climate change is a new book in the award-winning non-fiction series for teens, The Drum. Written by award winner Carole Wilkinson, author of the bestselling book The Drum: Black Snake and the international smash hit Dragonkeeper series.
Talking about the weather used to be small talk, now it's the hottest topic on Earth. We can’t survive without Earth’s atmosphere, yet most of the time we ignore it. We treat our atmosphere as a rubbish dump for our greenhouse gas emissions. Slowly but surely, what we are doing is changing Earth’s climate. Atmospheric cuts through the many voices raised around climate change to tell the story of our atmosphere, what is putting our climate at risk and what we can do about it. This could be the most important book you read in your life.
Atmospheric is an insightful piece of multimodal non-fiction which really makes you think twice about the environment around us and how we care for it. This is a book which is both easy to read and yet deeply informative…
