The History of a Word 02/07/20
Publisher: Faber & Faber
Planet Awesome (sometimes known as Earth) presents the story of her first 4.54 billion years, from her birth as a hot, gassy baby planet to the lush, life-giving world we now inhabit.
She can introduce you to her family (other planets and stars), inhabitants (from dinosaurs to humans) and also to her best friend (the moon). And if you’ve ever wondered what the Earth is made of, or what she likes to do best, look no further.
This compact picture book reimagines planet Earth as an A-list celebrity and is packed with fascinating facts presented as a witty life story in an accessible, conversational style.
A humorous, fabulously entertaining and lavishly illustrated introduction to astronomy, geology, natural history and ecology from the point of view of planet Earth herself.
