Synopsis

Discover the pollution crisis in our oceans through the eyes of one lost plastic duck in this engaging and stylish picture book based on a true story.



When a shipping container filled with 28,000 plastic ducks spilled into the Pacific Ocean, where did all those ducks go? Based on a true story, this innovative take on the plastic pollution crisis follows one duck as it travels on ocean currents to meet sea life and discovers the rubbish from humans that endangers our oceans. A highly accessible and stylish picture book with a positive message about environmental issues, from the author-illustrator of Curiosity, which was shortlisted for the Royal Society Young People's Book Prize.
