Description of this Book

What happens when a boy is brave enough to stand up for what he feels is right? Greedy Greenbackboy's got an idea for a game. He wants Snowboy to help him cut down all the trees in the forest and catch all the fish in the deep and ever-moving ocean. But Snowboy recognizes the importance of life in the natural world around him and, in this evocatively told tale, has to trust his instinct to protect, rather than destroy... From the illustrator of Oliver and Frances Dean Who Loved to Dance and Dance, and highly acclaimed author, Hiawyn Oram, comes a poignant eco-conscious story, and a vivid portrayal of a child's imaginative play.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review [...] the book is beautiful to look at and filled with quirky characters. * Andrea Reece, LoveReading * [...] the pages positively glow and as for the story well what is not to love about stories of bravery, heroism and friendship. * Armadillo * The story has a strong moral message about power, decision making, responsibility and protecting after the earth. Beautifully illustrated with a fairy-tale quality the fable is a lyrical introduction to ecology and conservation. * Brenda Marshall, School Library Association *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
