Nosy Crow set to publish Earth Heroes, a collection of stories showing how individuals can make a difference

We’re delighted to announce the acquisition of Earth Heroes: Twenty Inspiring Stories of People Saving Our World!

Having won this inspirational collection of stories at auction in June, we plan to publish the book this October, less than four months after acquisition, due to the timely and hugely important environmental message of the book.

With twenty inspirational stories celebrating the pioneering work of a selection of EARTH HEROES from all around the globe, from Greta Thunberg and David Attenborough to Yin Yuzhen and Isatou Ceesay, each tale is a beacon of hope in the fight for the future of our planet, proving that one person, no matter how small, can make a difference. Written in an accessible, narrative and engaging style by journalist and children’s author Lily Dyu, each story will encourage young readers to realise their own potential to create change.

With cover and interior illustrations by US illustrator Jackie Lay and containing inspirational quotes and photographic portraits of all of the Earth Heroes featured, the UK-printed gift hardback will be produced in the most environmentally-responsible way possible, from paper sourcing to delivery packaging.

Lily Dyu comments: ‘Our world is at a tipping point and young people are leading the calls for action. I’m writing this book to shine a light on some of the often-unsung heroes – young and old – doing amazing things to protect the environment. Their stories show how individuals can and do make a difference.’

Earth Heroes will be in stores in October.
