A Planet Full of Plastics by Neal Layton

Neal Layton, eco-warrior and award winning author and illustrator, is back with another superb picture book that educates us about plastic, it’s uses and environmental impact in a fun and approachable way. 

Neal’s brilliantly evocative collage illustrations make this an accessible and engaging read, an essential educational tool for classrooms and libraries and the perfect read for young nature lovers. It will get young readers excited about how they can make a difference to keep Planet Earth happy. 

“Everything is made of stuff. Some things are made of paper, like this book. And some things are made of PLASTIC. If you look around you, plastic is everywhere. Even in places where it’s not meant to be. If it drops to the ground, it doesn’t rot away – it sticks around for ever.”

A Planet Full of Plastic publishes soon with Hachette Children’s Books (@wrenandrookbook) 

Neal said about writing this book: “A Planet Full of Plastic really was a book I felt I HAD to write.  I felt I knew a bit about the plastic problem, after all I had a’ keep-cup’ but making this book really was an enlightening journey for me.”
