Meet Eve. She lives on the edge of a big forest and loves trees, especially Baobabs.
This is the next book in a collection inspired by the Sustainability Development Goals, or SDGs. Let’s call them 17 promises that we grown-ups have made to future generations to leave the world a better place for them… although in 2022 it feels more like a set of broken promises. The first book was the award-winning Astro Girl. Here are some sketches and images that shaped the book.
The writing was very considered in this book. It was hard to think about how to follow Astro Girl, especially as it has a very strong and particular ending. Eco Girl needed to be distinctly different enough to stand on its own but still have a link to Astro Girl.
There are more books planned, and each of them will be a different child character learning how to make a difference to the world in their own way.
