This story materialized when my (at the time) 5 year old daughter asked for one more story. My eyes too far gone to read another book, I turned off the light, closed my tired eyes and recited the first thing that popped into my head. When I left her room, I immediately wrote down the crux of the story, which later became An Angry Earth:The no-nonsense children’s book telling it like it is, so everyone can get behind the fight to limit climate change, prevent ecocide, and give our children a real chance.
An Angry Earth offers a terrifying end to a world whose overseers abused its resources to live more comfortably until the Earth had nothing left to give. Each concurrent devastating natural disaster is recorded by a single child left to bear witness.
It starts with a rumbling underfoot. Then the ocean reaches for the sky and the land is lost to the sea.The water recedes and the soil becomes as dust. And all at once you realize the choices you’ve made are the reasons you have arrived at this end. An environmentally charged and fully illustrated telling of what will happen if we do not curb our current abuses.
