“With the pizzazz and humour that make his Dragonsitter books so popular, Josh Lacey tells the story of one girl’s efforts to save the planet… There are great illustrations throughout, and it all makes for a fast, entertaining and positive read. Hooray for Hope Jones!”

Children will love reading this candid, funny and relatable blog. The easy, conversational tone is matched with plenty of playful and modern comic-style illustrations… Hope’s story captures the environmental zeal young people hold and provides a compendium of tips for those wanting to make changes in their own homes. It’s the perfect book to inspire conversations about activism too as it showcases stories of iconic protestors and presents diverse points of view.

Via funny, believable blog posts, Hope narrates the progress of her anti-plastic struggle, with protests outside the local supermarket, attempts to get her grumpy neighbour recycling and missteps along the way. Lacey’s focus on small gains and collective action makes for a lively and heartening read.
