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.
