The Smallest Carbon Footprint in the Land & Other Eco-Tales Reviews
Not sure why it took me so interminably long to finish this sometimes side-splitting collection of recycled fairy tales, but like a cold compost heap, it was worth the effort and wait. Anne Morgan has gardened a handful of organically enhanced fairy tale re-tellings, visually enriched with illustrations by Tassie artist Gay McKinnon which entertain and set the thinking wheels in motion. Morgan is loud and proud about her message of sustainable living in these eco-tales but thankfully not in a slap your face, you-will-eat-your-vegies-or-else kind of way. Little kids will get a chuckle out of this collection of short stories, while us bigger ones will rejoice from the breath of fresh air reinventions. The Smallest Carbon Footprint in the Land, based on Cinderella, is my particular favourite. Great book to use as a springboard to environmental discussions with readers of all ages.
