This new series from the acclaimed author of The Dragonsitter introduces readers to Hope, an ambitious 10-year-old who is on a mission to use less plastic, and get those around her to stop too!


Written in a blog format, this is an inspirational story proving you’re never too young to make a big difference.


Praise for Hope Jones Saves the World


“Via funny, believable blog posts, Hope narrates the progress of her anti-plastic struggle, with protests outside the local supermarket, attempts to get her grumpy neighbour recycling and missteps along the way. Lacey’s focus on small gains and collective action makes for a lively and heartening read.” Imogen Russell Williams, The Guardian
