The Green Dragon and the Oh No Bird with Suzanne Younan | The Green Dragon and the Oh No Bird 與Suzanne Younan
Set in Hong Kong with familiar scenes and locations, the characters are based on creatures that live in Hong Kong and the problems they sadly face due to human habits. The Green Dragon and the Oh No Bird is a lighthearted story that highlights the problem of litter in our Country Parks. Despite recent picnic area closures due to the pandemic, the problem of litter in the parks is still unfortunately an issue. Raising awareness to the dangers of plastic and litter in general to the animal population from a different angle, two inspired children get together to create a ‘Green Picnic Guide’ to help influence the community.
Suzanne hopes to inspire children and young families to get outside and enjoy nature responsibly. The illustrations are packed with things to spot ….’a creature feature’ and the book aspires to encourage the youngsters to get outside and see for themselves!
