Mr. Penny is green….at least in his heart and mind. As Grandma Penny taught him, when in doubt, listen to Mother Nature for the wisdom that flows freely to all generations. The global waters are rising. Lady Liberty’s Flame of Freedom is in danger of being extinguished. In this family picture storybook, Mr. Penny learns that the solution to the climate crisis is in us - our connection to Mother Nature, each other, our roots and the common good. Mr. Penny’s story is a family literary event, having the intention of engagement rather than entertainment, active discussion rather than passive immersion.
