Biodiversity and environmental awareness in an age-appropriate format – suitable for reading aloud or alone

Walter is a little water bear who lives in Greenland. He has barely had chance to thaw out after his hibernation before his ice floe snaps off and takes him on an odyssey around the world. Water bears are tiny and can adapt to extreme living conditions. Like no other creatures on the planet, they are a byword for bio-diversity. Walter's involuntary journey around the world leads him through the great multitude of the Earth's habitats. On the way, he meets all sorts of other animals, and learns about the biodiversity of our flora and fauna and the way in which everything hangs together in a natural balance.

Take an adventure-filled journey with Walter around a world which has biodiversity as its core. An oft-discussed topic given a new slant with this book and cuddly water bear toy. | 6 +

Engelhardt, Michael (Author) Kruschak, Ronald (Author)

Little dinosaur Fred bumps into Annegret, who has - without her Granny’s permission - set off in Granny’s time machine and has accidentally ended up travelling back to the Dinosaur Age. When Annegret’s conscience starts to prick her and she wants to return to her own time, they discover that a fully-grown Tyrannosaurus Rex has mistaken the time machine for an egg, and is busily trying to incubate it.

Fred and Annegret come up with a ruse to lure the T Rex away from the ‘egg’. As a result of a whole host of unfortunate events, though, it isn’t just Annegret who travels back to her own time but also Fred and - clamped by the tip of its tail - the T Rex. Cue much hilarity all round.

Laugh-out-loud funny, with brightly coloured wax crayon style illustrations .
Developed with and approved by children (test groups found it hilarious).
