Publisher Comments:

A humorous, quirky look at global warming from the angle of environmental politics, with exquisite pastiche illustrations

The earth is warming up. The polar bear has turned green, the dingo's gone doolally, and the wolf is floating on an island mid-ocean. The animals know something is very wrong, but what exactly? After much bleating, the dolphins are dispatched as envoys to find and investigate the root cause of the problem. Farting cows, of course! They are responsible for the environmental meltdown. But with a lot of gas being spouted in all directions, can the animals find and agree on a solution to the cow problem in time to save the earth? By drawing on a long-established tradition of animal satire, this book holds the looking glass up to human society and asks readers to be bold, imaginative, and thoroughly out-of-the-box in the quest for answers to the big questions.
