Product description

Longlisted for the Little Rebels Award 2023 A hilarious book about eco-activism gone WILD ! Young Percy’s parents are environmental activists, and Percy is super OVER IT. He would rather stay home and play Xbox, rather than going to demonstrations every weekend. Meanwhile, his father wants to glue himself to a plastic bag factory, and his mum has invented a machine that messes with DNA and just might bring extinct species back to life. And when the neighbour next door suddenly turns into a talking rat, Percy is roped into a hilarious, madcap adventure in which everyone seems to want to get their hands on the species machine – and Percy comes to appreciate what his parents are fighting for.

Our August 2022 Ages 7-8 Book of the Month

Our book of the month for children aged 7+ is Don’t Tell Mum I Made a Mammoth, which is a hilarious book about eco-activism gone wild! Percy’s parents are environmental activist and he is not interested at all – he would rather play on his Xbox than go on demonstration marches every weekend. When Percy’s mum invents a machine that can bring extinct animals back into existence and suddenly everybody is trying to get their hands on it, Percy is roped into a crazy adventure where he learns to truly appreciate what his parents are fighting so hard for.

This is a brilliantly funny story with strong environmental themes perfect for getting kids talking about extinction, climate change and what we can do to protect our planet.
