Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day with this clever, climate-focused twist on the classic “Chicken Little” story.

Loony Little and her friends set off to tell the Polar Bear Queen that the polar ice cap is melting. Sly Foxy Loxy attempts to lead the animals to his lair to eat them, but Loony Little saves the day, tricking the fox into being devoured by the Polar Bear Queen. Includes information about climate change and the animal species in the book.

UPDATED EDITION: Originally published in 2003, updated text and back matter bring this cautionary tale about climate change to a new generation.

ESTABLISHED AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR: Dianna Hutts Aston is a well-known author, most lauded for An Egg is Quiet and the other books in that series. Kelly Murphy is a well-known illustrator of approximately fifteen picture books as well as numerous middle-grade and YA covers.

UNIQUE CONCEPT: Using the Chicken Little story to draw attention to climate change is a smart way to introduce a potentially scary concept to young readers.

TIMELY TOPIC: Climate change and the polar icecap melting is relevant in the current political climate.

ANNIVERSARY: The 40th anniversary of Earth Day is April 22, 2020.
