Beetles for Breakfast

Madeleine Finlay

Regular price $25.99

We all know the effects that climate change and global warming are having on our planet - but what we don't all know is some of the strange, and often bizarre ways scientists are working to find practical and imaginative answers to these big problems.

Following a day in the life of an average child, we see how some of these futuristic inventions could fit into everyday life: from brushing your teeth with biodegradable algae, to eating beetle burgers for lunch and coming home to do your homework with a pen containing ink made from exhaust fumes. With a mixture of abstract, infographic-style artwork and topical, funny and expertly-researched facts, children will love seeing familiar scenes with a futuristic twist, teaching them all about the cool, exciting and sometimes quite strange inventions that could be commonplace in the not-so-distant future.
