Taking the form of letters between a small girl and Greenpeace, this book tells the story of a girl who finds a whale in her garden pond. Simon James has also written My Friend Whale' and Sally and the Limpet.
Worried that the whale living in her pond is unhappy, Emily embarks on a correspondence with Greenpeace which, despite offering the best of advice, insists that it would be impossible for a whale to live in a pond. Undeterred, young Emily continues to seek the best course of action for her beloved whale, finally setting him free.
Unique, quirky, gentle, warm hearted and thoughtful, Dear Greenpeace is a pleasure to read, and cleverly avoids the trap of being preachy and precious about its subject. (Ages 3 to 6) -- Susan Harrison
