About the Event

In this special Earth Day Author Visit, we will be joined by author Evelyn Bookless, all the way from the Netherlands!

Evelyn’s first picture book, Captain Green and the Plastic Scene, illustrated by Danny Deeptown, won a Northern Lights Book Award for Children’s Environmental Fiction.

During our visit, Evelyn will read her book Captain Green and The Tree Machine, teaching us about deforestation and sharing ways for both young and old superhumans to help.

Captain Green and the Tree Machine is a fun and action-packed book.  Captain Green is summoned to help baby animals find food, shelter and safety but is quickly overwhelmed by the enormity of his task of saving the forests.  Readers will feel compassion for the animals left hungry and homeless and root for Captain Green and his team of kids who are eager to help plant trees.
