Written by JOHN AGARD | Illustrated by PIET GROBLER
Excitement spreads like bushfire through the jungle. Earth-goddesses are planning a conference! From Australia to Antarctica, the Amazon to Africa, goddesses will debate the burning environmental issues of our times...and bushy-tailed, smooth-talking Coyote wants in on the action! Can this infamous trickster come up with a plan to infiltrate the conference and leave a lasting legacy for our planet? A rip-roaring poem by a master poet, inspired by Earth Day.

'A perfect pairing – John Agard’s poetry that demands to be performed (you can hear his voice), Piet Grobler's vibrant colours and characters leaping off the page. A passionate contemporary message brought to life with humour. A book that really does stand out' – Ferelith Hordon, librarian
'Agard’s words and Grobler’s illustrations harmoniously deliver an engaging and timely tale. Humans have indeed become blind to the fragile beauty of the Earth. This story, packed full of playful characters that fly and dance around the page as creation myths are told, asks young readers to take a different view and to love the world around them' – Andy Robert Davies, children's illustrator
'The more I read this book the more I wanted to read it again because every time I looked at it again I noticed a new drawing or found something to use in my own writing. This is an important story to tell because lots of bad things are happening to our world currently and it reminds us of what we need to do to help our planet' – Lottie, Books Up North, Kid Reviewer
'Quirky and inventive. The writing is beautiful. The illustrations truly shine and will be enjoyed by all. An aesthetically pleasing and stimulating work of art' – ALA Booklist
