Green Pieces: Green From the Pond Up by Drew Aquilina
Do you like cartoons? How about laughing out loud? This book will make you do that.
This collection of cartoons is published by Five Star Publications (thanks for the review copy) and is suitable for both young adults and adults.
His cartoon characters are cute, quite human in their responses, and quite silly sometimes. The basic underlying theme is to stress environmental protection and show you how even the smallest ecological change can effect the animals in the pond.
Iggy (Iggman) the turtle who is happy with the simple life, Radic the dragonfly who is radical, Cabby the frog whose DNA changed while he a tadpole and now he's super smart (and a bit unhinged), and Roc the raccoon.
I have to admit Roc is my favorite character. He's big bad boy who steals his food just like real raccoons do and he's always in trouble.
The messages are subtle and mixed with enough humor it's fun to read the cartoons. Who knows what the mixed up group from the pond will do next?
