Winner of the Blue Peter Book Awards: Best Book with Facts 2006.
A clever story which successfully wraps up a mass of information in a remarkably small space. Spud takes a tough New Year’s decision: he decides to go green and keeps a diary to prove that he’s sticking to what he says. He grows his own food, recycles his rubbish, cares for the wildlife – it doesn’t seem to be that hard. But then things begin to go wrong and Spud really does have to make an effort to keep his life green. It’s inspiring stuff full of useful advice and facts.
Spud Goes Green by Giles Thaxton
Spud’s not Superman, but he wants to save the planet!
Spud is an easy going chap who’s taken on a tricky New Year resolution.
It’s 1st January and he’s decided to go green – and this is his diary to prove it! The year starts well: he learns to grow food, recycle rubbish, look after wildlife. It all seems to be going according to plan … With the help of Adi and some friends, Spud is determined to give it all he’s got, no matter what goes wrong!
This is a virtually edible book! It’s made of recycled paper and printed using vegetable inks, making it is as green as you can get. (We wanted to use elephant dung paper – but it turns out there is a world shortage of the dung. Honestly :)
. * 'A most engaging diary... There's a happy and accessible balance of useful information, light-hearted banter and earnest endeavour here.
