Environment Award for Children's Literature Winner

This award-winning title from Australia will resonate with young activists everywhere and is a really enjoyable read to boot!

Casey, Zeke and Cookie are Green Peas- their own secret activist organisation designed to grab attention for important environmental issues- usually by means of ‘pranks’ or practical jokes, which cause great hilarity to their school mates but certainly get attention. Casey is the pranks mastermind having been trained in pranking from an early age by her delightfully mischievous Grandpa , the mainstay of the family since the death of Casey’s mother Trixie. Trixie passed on her passion for the environment to Casey and also left her a box of cards with Trixie Wu’s Thoughts on …which pop up throughout the book. The Green Peas have to get more serious when the trio discover what the greedy town Mayor is up to, and they must use all their considerable ingenuity to reveal her schemes to an apathetic community and get the plans overturned.

These are delightful, diverse and well-rounded characters and the family and friends’ relationships feel authentic and believable. Grandpa’s hearing problems are based upon the author’s own family and some of Grandpa’s anecdotes are true! Casey’s obsession with collecting and using interesting words adds a lovely vocabulary boosting learning opportunity to this fantastic heart-warming, fast paced and funny story, which has a serious message of empowerment for young readers.
