Follow penguins as they take the lead in solving the climate crisis. They need to save their melting home. After all, it is made of ice. They put fossil fuels to bed under cookie sheets, bed sheets, and even a really big ice sheet! But the fossil fuels are rowdy and won't stay in bed, causing all kinds of weather chaos. Consulting with scientists, the penguins hatch a plan to prevent fossil carbon from wreaking further havoc on Earth's climate, people, and ecosystems. What is the plan? How can you help?


This epic story of climate change has been carefully researched and written by a doctor of climate science, and professionally illustrated with 25 unique watercolors. Beautiful, hopeful, and a little bit silly, this book will inform and entertain children of all ages.


Arriving at a pivotal moment for defining the future, this book is designed to educate, spark discussion and inspire action. With an engaging story and a well-researched Epilogue, this book guides families who are looking to make a difference in our collective climate future.


Wake up to the climate crisis and join the fight to wish fossil fuels goodnight!

Industry Reviews

"My 5-year-old son doesn't like books about "real things," but he was captivated by the illustrations and the penguins and asked to read it three times in a row." Dr. Kimberley Mortstock, renewable energy engineer, climate expert, and mother.


"Hail to the penguins and the scientists too. They know that fossil fuels are bad for me and you. Read this book and have happy dreams, of a world without fossil fuels, and a climate that gleams!" Dr. Jonathan Overpeck, Climate scientist and Dean of the School for Environment and Sustainability at the University of Michigan.


"A beautiful book that gets the facts across with a message of hope and empowerment for kids." Professor Eric Steig, Chair of Earth and Space Sciences at the University of Washington.
