There is rising climate anxiety in children and young people around the world. But as Gran says in chapter 4: “doing nothing is scary, doing something gives us hope”.
Although children often have good information on global warming, there is little on what to do about it – especially broader social action. This story addresses that gap. The two central characters begin in a small way to be climate heroes but take this much further with grand-power – the love that grandparents often have for their grandchildren.

“I like that there’s room to write my own ideas – kinda neat to be told to write your own words in a real book” – Primary School Student, Canada
“I really like this book” – Henry, aged 11, Sydney
