When Tessa writes a love letter to the Earth, it's the beginning of a glorious adventure. She blows bubbles with whales, soars with birds and joins in with the noisy rainforest hullabaloo!
Tessa wants everyone to know how special our planet is. She believes that there is a chance to save the Earth if enough of us share the message...



Isabel Otter and Clara Anganuzzi have created one of the most beautiful picture books I have had the pleasure of reading recently. The story revolves around Tessa, our inquisitive and caring star of the story. Tessa's grandpa was an explorer and now in his old age, regales Tessa with stories of his adventures around planet Earth. As he speaks, his words paint a thousand pictures in Tessa's mind. So much so that Tessa feels the need to write to the Earth to share her gratitude for what she has heard about and what she has seen. Written from her point of view, we get to share in all the parts of the world that Tessa appreciates and wants to experience, from the deep oceans to the desert dunes. As you read, it is only natural to find yourself lost in the combination of beautiful language choices and wonderful illustrations. Even the way in which the text is arranged works to his advantage as you are encouraged to move with the book as you travel across the world. From a teaching point of view, I can see this text become a real asset to my library and will be used when covering the topic of 'Our Wonderful World'. There is a clear message that our world is special and we should appreciate it. An absolute joy. Picture book / Ages 4+ / Reviewed by Kyle Matravers, teacher
