Climate change and resource depletion are already starting to change our lives. Today's children will be the principal victims of these profound changes. If they are to cope with these problems, they must understand them. This book, in the form of an illustrated story or "comic book," can help provide the first steps. Hugo and Elodie meet Maddy, the spirit of a species of butterfly now extinct because humans destroyed its habitat. The magical butterfly invites the children onto its wings for a ride all over the world. They observe the results of climate change: heat waves and droughts, storms and floods, melting glaciers and the rising sea.
