The Trouble With Dragons

Author: Debi Gliori

Publisher: Bloomsbury, 32 pages

This picture book by the creator of the best-selling No Matter What is a cautionary tale for readers young and old about the use and misuse of the planet, featuring dragons. The world is populated by some beastly dragons who care nothing for how much they mess up the oceans, chop down the trees, gobble up all the food and use everything up without stopping to think.

Those dragons need to wake up to what they are doing to their world before it is too late. This energy-filled picture book addresses concerns about the environment in the most child-centric and delightful way possible.


Author: Matthew Glass

Publisher: Atlantic Monthly Press, 400 pages

November 2032. Joe Benton has just been elected the 48 president of the United States. Only days after winning, Benton learns that previous estimates regarding the effect of global warming on rising sea levels have been grossly under-estimated.

For the United States, a leading carbon emitter for decades, the prospects are devastating: 30 million coastal-dwellers will need to be relocated, Miami will be washed into the ocean and southern California will waste away to desert.

With the world frighteningly close to catastrophe, Benton opts to abandon multi-lateral negotiations in the Kyoto 4 summit and resumes secret bilateral negotiations with the Chinese – the world's worst polluter. As the two superpowers lock horns, the ensuing battle of wits becomes a race against time.
