Book Review: Spud Goes Green



If you or the kids haven’t set out this year’s New Year’s resolutions yet, it’s not too late. Try ‘Spud Goes green’ by

Giles Thaxton for some inspiration on how to truly go green and do your part to save our planet. Or at least some

steps towards it.


Inspired by his knowledgeable next-door neighbour Adi, young enthusiastic Spud decides to do his best to save

the planet in one year. This involves some experimenting – not always successful – but all good attempts are

documented in a light and fun way in this full-year diary following his progress.


Trying to “go green” or at least think a bit more about what you can do to help the environment, requires surprising

facts and some fun. And this is certainly something you get from Spud. He shares some important facts about our

planet and shows you things like how to save energy in your home with “textile snakes”, how to build a pond in your

garden, recycling and other useful stuff. But also quirky things like how to dye T-shirts with grass, how to grow a

red daffodil or how to make your own paper!


This book is great used two ways, either follow Spud’s progress chronologically from January to December,

or simply pick up some tips here and there when you feel like it is what this book is good for. Colourful illustrations

(on recycled paper of course) by Nigel Baines adds that little extra spark to inspire the little greenie in your child.


Giles Thaxton himself lives on an old wooden boat in Wales, working as a carpenter. This is his first book.


You can find ‘Spud Goes Green’  on Amazon or Egmont: www.amazon.co.uk or www.egmont.co.uk.
