Dear Earth by Isabel Otter and Clara Anganuzzi

Publication Date: 5 March 2020

The Blurb

When Tessa writes a love letter to the Earth, it’s the beginning of a glorious adventure. She blows bubbles with whales, soars with birds and joins in with the noisy rainforest hullabaloo!

Tessa wants everyone to know how special our planet is. She believes that there is a chance to save the Earth if enough of us share the message…


The Review

A glorious celebration of the power of imagination, and the wonders of our planet while skilfully highlighting it’s fragility.

Through her letter to Earth, Tessa takes us on a journey through some of the wide and varied habitats that cover our planet, meeting a menagerie of creatures, large and small along the way.

The mix of beautifully simple, and mesmerising, intricately detailed illustrations by Clara Anganuzzi carry you along with Tessa’s excitement for the amazing places her imagination takes her, recalling the stories her Grandad has told her of his adventures.


The ending is a gentle call to spread the word about saving the planet we call home. With information on the damage we are doing, and what we can do to help our planet, this is a wonderful book that deserves a place in every school. It’s versatility for classroom use, beyond the joy of sharing, is huge.

Huge thanks to Little Tiger Group for sending me a copy.
