This inspiring picture book is an imaginative retelling of the story of Nobel Peace Prize nominee Greta Thunberg - the Swedish teenager who is leading a global movement to raise awareness about the world’s climate crisis.
Using creative allegory and beautiful illustrations, it succeeds in a noble cause of its own: making the subject of fighting to protect our planet accessible and inspiring to young children.

"When Greta was not much older than you, she found out about something called climate change..."
So, when Greta was 15, she went on strike from school, sitting outside the Swedish government building and holding a sign that said, “Strike For Climate.”
Over time, people stopped to join her and now, her protest has encouraged children and adults from all over the world to stand up for climate change too.
Greta has now spoken to politicians from all over the world to help bring change, and in 2019 she was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Recommended for ages 4-7, but we think age is just a silly number - you're never too young or too old to be introduced to a book like this.

“Something very special. Crisp writing and sumptuously-lit forests of colour lift the story beyond preachiness to create a gripping parable for our age.”

"Introducing those important lessons to young minds can be tricky, but a new picture book, Greta and the Giants is a great place to start."
