"A very funny book! Recommended for people who love the environment, rabbits, or socks!" - 5 star Goodreads Review

"What a motley group of characters and so much fun! Bring on the carrots!" - 5 star Goodreads Review

There are three things you should know about Seaweed:

  1. He is an eleven-year-old boy (and not the slimy green stuff at the bottom of the ocean)
  2. He is an Eco-Warrior and the only one in Picklington
  3. He is willing to do whatever it takes to save the planet . . . anything!

Here are three more things that make Seaweed really angry:

  1. The people of Picklington are wasting far too much electricity. Bummer!
  2. The Mayor of Picklington is profiting from the pollution by building his unsafe and unnecessary Nuclear Power Station. Double bummer!!
  3. The Picklington Vegetable Society is campaigning tirelessly against the Mayor (which is hard work considering Seaweed is the only member) and they are getting zero results. Triple bummer with a non-biodegradable plastic cherry on top!!!

He feels like he is letting the planet down . . . until he joins The Carrot Bandits.

Join him as he discovers that indoctrination isn't so bad. Sure, joining a criminal organisation and stealing one million socks is probably wrong but he gets to hang out with Pank, his equally indoctrinated sidekick, and he is finally making a real difference.

But blowing up the entire town in a catastrophic nuclear explosion would be a step too far, wouldn't it?

This hilarious book is perfect for the little and big Eco-Warriors in this world. It's going to take everyone to save our planet, and that's exactly what this book is here to say (and also to make you laugh, but mainly the saving the planet thing).

Shipping & Returns

Shipping: When you order a book, it gets printed especially for you and dispatched by the printer (the most environmentally friendly way to print books). This usually takes around 3 days. You can also choose between a slow and cheap or fast and less cheap delivery in the checkout.

Returns: You've got 30 days to decide whether you want to return the book for a full refund. Read the full Refunds Policy here.

Why Buy Directly from the Author?

There is no way one little author can compete with the big online stores who can offer free delivery and cheap prices. But when you order directly from authors, you are supporting their independence, and also the independent printers they use, which is much appreciated!

It's a bit like being a Patreon. More of the money you spend will go into the creator's pocket. And the more times that happens, the more books will get created.
