Hope Jones is a schoolgirl determined to do her bit to save the planet! She has started a campaign against plastic pollution and now, in Hope Jones Will Not Eat Meat, she is on a mission to save the animals, trying to persuade her friends and family to go vegetarian.
Hope Jones is a great series by author Josh Lacey, for ages 7+ and everyone who wants to change the world.
Written as a diary, filled with blog posts letters and posters, as well as Beatriz Castro's brilliant illustrations, the Hope Jones books are easy and fun to read and perfect for teaching kids that you are never too young to make a difference.
Two pupils at Coleham School, Gwen and Eva, were among the first reviewers of Josh's latest book and loved it!
Here is what their teacher had to say:“Our year 5 pupils read this book and absolutely loved it! Two girls read it in one night and came racing to me with their reviews. Our pupils love reading series books and this eco series cleverly hits a gap in the market. Written through Hopes blog entries, it can engage readers with short chapters and illustrations. Full of facts, debate and opinion on eco matters and sensitively covering misconceptions. All eco warrior children should enjoy this.”
We gave Gwen and Eva the chance to ask Josh some questions about the book, his writing and the environment - read on to find out more!
