I’m thrilled to be a part of The Plastic Disaster Blog Tour and sharing my review of Monty and the Ocean Rescue: A Plastic Disaster written by M.T. Sanders and beautifully illustrated by Zoe Saunders.
About the Book
Monty, Cookie and the spangles are back at the beach for the fifth book in this series of children’s books.
When Cookie sees a splash in the water her instinct to rescue takes over, and she immediately heads out to help. When she returns the dogs get a huge surprise as they hear a desperate plea.
What follows is an adventure that could turn out to be their biggest and most difficult so far.
This is a gentle introduction for children about the issues of plastic pollution in our oceans and even features Sir David Attenborough.
Signed and pawtagraphed copies are available worldwide via the website https://www.montydogge.com/bookstore
The book is also available via most online bookstores.
About the Author
M.T. Sanders is a writer, blogger and author of the children’s book Monty and the Ocean Rescue.
An accidental career began after he took early retirement and began writing stories on social media about his five dogs. Life according to Monty Dogge soon attracted a huge following and led to invites to blog live from Crufts and other high-profile events.
In 2017 and 2018 Vuelio placed it in the top ten UK pet blogs and the still growing readership encouraged MT to write a book. I’m not a Pandacow was the debut children’s book released in 2017 and this has been quickly followed by four more to date.
MT and Monty spend the major part of their time touring schools across the country bringing the tales to life as children get to meet the star of the books.
The latest book is a real passion project for the author who is a huge supporter of conservation projects and a champion for animal welfare. It goes without saying that MT was delighted to receive a handwritten message of good luck from no other than Sir David Attenborough who features in the book.
Monty and the Ocean Rescue is a beautiful book that will appeal to young and old alike. The illustrations are bright and cheerful, and the simple rhythm of the story pulls you along.
The author is passionate about our environment and this comes across in the dedication as well as the story. It’s a wonderful way to educate and entertain the younger generation who are left with the mess we’ve made of our land and sea.
There are a host of characters from mermaids to whales and this makes it appealing to all children. This gorgeous little story also presents a closing page which offers the young reader more information on how they can help reduce plastic waste.
A delightful book with an important message.
