NEW BOOK! A Warmer World


Hurrah! Today is the official publication day of my new book, A Warmer World: From Polar Bears to Butterflies, How Climate Change Affects Wildlife (Charlesbridge, 2012.)  With colorful, rich illustrations by Jamie Hogan, the book has turned out beautifully.  I want to thank my editors and the art department at Charlesbridge for their meticulous attention to detail to make this stunning book.  It is about an important topic that I think we all need to learn more about.   
Here’s the flap copy:   Over the past several decades, our world has been warming at a faster rate than ever before.  Winters are shorter.  Sea levels have risen.  Territories of predators and prey have shifted.  To survive in this new environment, animals everywhere have had to adapt–or face extinction. Informative and thought provoking, and complemented by Jamie Hogan’s rich collage illustrations, A Warmer World offers young readers a clear-eyed look at the effects of climate change on animals around the world.
