Mio and Nao and brave gatherers for their small village. When something goes wrong with their food and water supply, the pair lead an expedition to find the source of the trouble.
The illustrations in this book are GORGEOUS! Each jumps of the page with glowing colors. The environmental message is quite heavy-handed, however. There are good factual picture books about this topic already, like Moth and Wasp, Soil and Ocean by Sigrid Schmalzer or Lily William’s If Sharks Disappeared, that I would use first. But you can’t beat those illustrations!
