They said I couldn't change the world; it wasn't worth the fight. But in my head, a small voice said . . . maybe I might. "A swansong for our ailing planet", this poem refuses to give up hope and instead follows a young girl as she makes the decision to plant a single seed and the tremendous, earth-changing actions that result. Gorgeously illustrated by the artist behind A Story About Afiya and Anita and the Dragons, this nature-filled poem is bursting with hope for a greener world and curls like the tendrils of a new stem towards its optimistic conclusion that, even when the future appears most bleak, every child can make a difference.
