As a young boy, David Suzuki loved spending time outdoors with his father. Today, he’s made it his life’s work to preserve the environment and save all life on Earth. Meet the nature-loving boy who became today’s iconic climate change activist, in Elizabeth MacLeod and Mike Deas‘ brilliant, new biographical graphic novel. Elizabeth talks about how she researched and wrote about David whilst Mike shows the way he created the images that bring the environmentalist’s exciting story to life from his experiences as a child being sent with his family to a Japanese internment camp in Canada, to his later work as a professor, then as a radio and TV host. Truly inspirational.

Recommended for ages eight and up.
