Book Launch – A Planet Full of Plastic by Neal Layton

June 29, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Planet full of plastic book

Come and join us at the official book launch of ‘A Planet Full of Plastic’.

This is local author & illustrator, Neal Layton’s, latest book and he’ll be there, to read the story, and answer questions, along with David Jones from Just One Ocean and Clare Seek of SAS: Plastic Free Portsmouth.

A free, family friendly event.

Copies of the book will be available to purchase at the event, and Neal will be on hand to sign them.

About the book:

Everything is made of stuff. Some things are made of paper, like this book. And some things are made of PLASTIC. If you look around you, plastic is everywhere. Even in places where it’s not meant to be. If it drops to the ground, it doesn’t rot away – it sticks around for ever.

Our world is drowning in plastic, and it’s a big problem. Award-winning author-illustrator Neal Layton is here to explain where plastic comes from, why it doesn’t biodegrade, and why that’s dangerous for animals and humans alike. But he’s also FULL of ideas for how you can help! From giving up straws in juice cartons to recycling all we can and taking part in a beach clean, A Planet Full of Plastic will get young readers excited about how they can make a difference to keep Planet Earth happy.

This brilliant non-fiction picture book, illustrated in Neal’s trademark collage style, is perfect for readers aged 4-7 who love nature and want to help the environment.


Please note that the Round Tower has a capacity of 60 and the event will run on a first come, first served basis.
