The Planet Rescue Club
is an ambitious suspense series about the environment and climate change for children (6–9 years). Illustrations by Jens Kristensen.
In the first book we meet Vanja, Sivert and Mo, who live in a small village in Western Norway. But mysterious things can happen even in a small place.
In the first book, The Black Swans, a boat crashes into the quay outside the factory. Vanja, Sivert and Mo discover an oil spill in the fjord and the white swans are now covered with oil. Does the oil come from the boat or is somebody intentionally polluting the fjord? Can it be the wealthy factory owner who is dumping the oil? Or is his mysterious assistant Luke responsible?
When the adults don’t believe what the children tell them, «The Planet Rescue Club» is being founded and Vanja, Sivert and Mo take matters into their own hands.
The Black Swans is the first of several volumes. Each volume has two pages with facts in the very end of the book.
