Praise for Ella and the Exploding Fish
"Sceptics will think that children don't need this book, but in a world where children are becoming more socially aware and conscious of what's going on, we can't afford to not have a book like this available to young minds." Jess Just Reads.
An excerpt from the story
When Ella and Ava got home, they put their fish in their new homes and decorated their tanks.
The next morning, they woke up early to check how their fish were going. But something wasn't quite right.
"Do you think our fish look a bit bigger today?" asked Ella.
"I'm not sure? Maybe we should feed them a bit less?" replied Ava.
"Good idea!" said Ella.
Ava woke up the next day to Ella squealing.
"Come quick! COME QUICK!" Ella yelled. "Something's happened!"
We create gorgeous children’s books with a message. But when we produce them, we also send a message.
The overwhelming majority of the world’s children’s books are produced in high-polluting factories, with non-recycled paper and petroleum-based ink, which is terrible for the environment. Here at Ethicool, we knew that wasn’t an option for us - we couldn’t very well contribute to the problem we were trying to solve. That’s why Ethicool books are printed on recycled papers, using soy-based, environmentally safe inks.
