We are so happy to announce that WEIRD WEATHER!, the most important children’s book of the season, will be published in Sweden by Rabén & Sjögren.
Climate changes, why don’t we? Weird weather! answers children’s tough questions about climate change, and tells how we can all fight against it. Two clever buddies, Lotta and Kasper get tired of their parents’ evasive answers about weird weather. They decide to research what climate change is really is about! In year 2020 Lotta and Kasper write an email to the world:
Subject: How do you explain climate change?
How’s it going? A long, hot summer is coming to an end here, and school has already started. But is there any point going to school if it and everything else might be drowned in a flood in less than a hundred years? Maybe—it depends on what schools teach!
We were thinking that first we need to imagine a better future and then make it happen. We know that you’re already seeing climate change where you are, and there’s a lot of trouble coming during our lifetimes if we don’t act now.
But what do you hope for? What will your home be like in 2050 if we do everything we can to prevent climate change? Then we’ll be our parents’ age, so super old! 😀
Lotta and Kasper from Finland
