about

The Earth is in peril-through pollution, global warming, oil spills, and tragic neglect of the environment. Those who respond first are the animals. There is The Fluff, a penguin; Creamy, a harp seal; Tomás, a black bear; Flora, a polar bear; and Lady Athabasca, a whooping crane, among others. Each of them has suffered from global warming and the neglect of the environment, and wants to do something about it. They jump on a magical train powered by positive thoughts and take off to let others know about the problems Earth's creatures are facing.Soon afterward, they travel to Santa Fe and pick up two young girls, Marina and Joanna, who record their incredible trip. The group travels east (as well as north and south) and along the way finds other friends who have endured hardship from fire, drought, and hurricanes. Their final destination is the White House where they hope their call for help is heard.With this book, young readers can join The Fluff and friends on the Global Warming Express to save our beautiful planet from pollution and global warming. It will be a trip worth taking!

Read from the Book

The train was suddenly tossed in the air as if it weighed nothing. Then, just as suddenly, it flew down to Earth, landed on what was left of the pavement, and started speeding through New York City again. The storm was over, but much of the city was ruined. The screen showed them images of destruction from all over New York. Even the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island had been affected."Oh, my!" Flora cried. "What a terrible mess!" Creamy started crying again, as everyone saw the city houses, buildings, subways, and parks that had been flooded or ruined. Inoah started to cry-or screech-again. "It's no use," she sobbed. "I don't think this can be fixed just by seeing the president." Zingo suddenly stood up on a chair and declared: "You're right! You can't just leave this to the president. He may be in charge, but he's only one dude. Real change takes a movement, a happening, a whole new mindset. You have to act. Because of climate change, this storm is one of the biggest to ever hit the East Coast," he said, shaking his fist. "It's your responsibility to create your own wonderful future! You guys can do this! I know you can! Look how far you've come already!"He pumped his fist in the air, and the animals all cried out in agreement."Now I need to leave you," he said. "I have to see how my home held up. But remember: You guys have the power to fix this problem. Take it from someone who knows how to change in order to survive. Goodbye!""Goodbye!" cried all the animals. "Good luck, Zingo!" They watched as he slipped out the door.

Editorial Reviews

"A memorable book. A modern-day fable sounding the alarm about the very real challenge of climate change." -- Tom Udall, U.S. Senator for New Mexico
