One World: 24 Hours on Planet Earth
Nicola Davies. Illustrator Jenni Desmond.
Longlisted for the 2022 James Cropper Wainwright Prize for Children's Writing on Nature and Conservation.
Nicola Davies and Jenni Desmond's first collaboration: a spectacular tour of Planet Earth and a powerful rallying cry.
Where on Earth are you, right now? It's late where I am and almost everyone's asleep, but I'm awake, looking out into the night. Wondering.
As the clock strikes midnight, a little girl and her sister visit animals of every shape and size, all around the world - discovering that, in some places, creatures have just started their day, where in others they're already busy hunting for food. Turning the popular concept of time-zones on its head and combining it with a powerful climate message and delightful illustrations, this book is narrative non-fiction at its most spellbinding. 40 pages.
