One World: 24 Hours on Planet Earth

By Nicola Davies

Illustrated by Jenni Desmond

Nicola Davies and Jenni Desmond's first collaboration: a spell-binding tour of Planet Earth and an important rallying cry.

Where on Earth are you, right now? It’s late where I am and almost everyone’s asleep, but I’m awake, looking out into the night. Wondering… As the clock starts striking midnight, a little girl and her sister visit animals of every shape and size, all around the world – discovering that, in some time-zones, creatures have just started their day, where in others they’re already busy hunting for food. Combining fascinating biology, spectacular artwork and an important climate message, Nicola Davies and Jenni Desmond’s first book together is a magnificent celebration of life on Earth ... and a powerful call to action. “Nicola Davies is one of the best children’s writers in the business.” Huffington Post “Jenni Desmond knows just how to make children’s precious imaginations soar.” Guardian
