Pick a place. Choose a creature. Discover its story and the danger it faces. Then find out how to help it survive. 15 wild and wonderful creatures, all on the IUCN Red List, need our help - this important book is interactive, engaging and informative, and will inspire children to save their planet!

Red Alert! is inspired and endorsed by the 'Red List' database maintained by International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Currently the list includes over 70,000 species known to be at risk, but it grows larger all the time.

"Absolutely beautiful and perfectly targeted for its audience. We are delighted to be involved." - Dr Craig Hilton-Taylor, Head of Red List Unit, IUCN

The IUCN Red List is supported by Sir David Attenborough.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"... it is good that these authors have brought the need for conservation to children's desks and made the connection with red and protection - recommended for all school libraries."

* School Librarian *

"I am confident that this book will be pored over individually, shared with friends, and discussed by primary school children of all ages. Although the text focuses on only fifteen creatures, the final list of another sixty endangered species will be hard to ignore. Who would not want to know more about the Golden-rumped Sengi, the Northern Quoll, the Devil's Hole Pupfish or the Banded Cotinga? And the tribute written by Sir David Attenborough in praise of the IUCN Red List emphasises that this is a book with huge credibility and relevance for a young contemporary audience."

* Just Imagine *

"Attractive and informative."

* The Week Junior *

'"This lovely children's book is a great springboard to inform our children of the threats some of the earth's creatures face."

* Curriculum Choice *

"A frank, insightful and informed narrative that is presented in the most novel and engaging way."

* 1320 Elements *

"Vibrant colourful spreads which are as much about the scientists working to limit extinctions as the animals themselves, remind readers that global conservation is a race and that there is an element of excitement in what scientists are working to achieve. Exposition is delivered here with refreshing humanity, inspiring readers to sit up, champion the challenges that animals face, and take action."

* BBC Wildlife *

"This excellent book really draws children in and allows them to see that they can have a part to play and choices to make in conservation."

* Parents in Touch *

" Essential reading for young environmentalists, a guide to 15 endangered species in six different habitats. There's detailed information about the challenges each creature faces, along with practical tips on what can be done. Interactive and inspiring."

-- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller *

"An informative and important book brimming with facts and perfect for any budding conservationist."

* Discover Animals *
