Mr Johnson's Good Idea

  • The (almost) true story of the man who managed to bring nature back in New York. A colourful feel-good picture book.

    Rusty nails, rotten fruit, flat mattresses, weary tires… That’s all that was left of salt marshes which bordered New York as the city transformed them into a garbage dump. Until a man named Herbert Johnson decided that it was time to bring nature back… Inspired by the true story of a pioneer of ecology, this poetic picture book reminds us how everybody, in their own way, can achieve great things for the planet.
