Here is what they said about the title:
“We are happy to be the future publisher of this beautiful book. Those maps of the enchanted planet Earth will help children learn a lot more about our planet and will fascinate the adults, too. We feel that such wonderful books may become even more important in this time of uncertainty to show us that life on the planet Earth still goes on and on.”

About the book:
ENCHANTED PLANET EARTH
by Laura Ertimo, illustrated by Satu Kontinen
There is a planet where plants plan world domination. Where beasts are good, and trees live for thousands of years, collecting memories in their bark. This enchanted place is Earth.
This book has 10 stories and 10 maps. They may sound or look like they are out of a fairy-tale, but they are real, true maps of our planet. The Enchanted Planet Earth is a children’s non-fiction book that also engages adults. Through magical maps, it teaches about nature, oceans and the history of continents. The stories also provide a context where adults and kids can discuss environmental issues and how people’s actions affect nature. Through narratives, the book explains the real processes that change our planet and make the Earth habitable.
