The Lovereading4Kids comment

Packed full of fascinating and vital information this is in part a story and in part a rich source of facts which, taken together, make it a brilliant introduction to how our world will be affected by climate change. How Jake lives in 2050 is a great story. It may become true or not but, as the facts supplied tell readers, many changes are inevitable as the effects of climate change are felt.

Synopsis

Will Farts Destroy the Planet? by Glenn Murphy

How will climate change affect our future world? Will forests turn to deserts? Will whole cities sink beneath the waves? Will we swim to school, and take speedboats to work? Will coal, oil, and cow farts destroy the planet?! Err...no. Probably not. But the world will change, and our future lives will change along with it. Are you ready for the future? In this amazing book, Glenn Murphy, author of Why Is Snot Green? , takes you on a time-travelling trip to the year 2050, to answer all your questions about the future of planet Earth. Join future-school student Jake as he explores a world of floating trains and liquid traffic ...of underwater windmills and volcanic electricity ...of vertical farms, rooftop cycle-tubes, solar-powered smart-houses and grass-powered buses! Packed with incredible information about the future of food, water, transport, energy and the environment, this book has all the good stuff and none of the boring bits!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
