A young girl takes action against ocean pollution in a timely story with unique plastic-waste diorama art from award-winning author-illustrator Alma Fullerton

Isley loves the ocean and everything in it. Well, almost everything. Her heart sinks at the sight of her Alantic Ocean shoreline covered in trash. One day, upon discovering a beached right whale that has starved to death after swallowing plastic, Isley decides enough is enough. She steers her family into adopting a zero-waste lifestyle, inspiring others to do the same. But when the adults around her give way to apathy and routine, how can Isley make sure her whale’s memory inspires lasting change?

With diorama art made from plastic waste by award-winning author-illustrator Alma Fullerton, No More Plastic is a moving, eye-catching, and ultimately hopeful reminder that the health of our oceans—and our planet—is in our hands.

Reviews:
“Among the best of the recent books about ocean plastic thanks to its positive approach and practical suggestions included at the end, this title would work well as a group read-aloud….A gentle, effective presentation of an environmental disaster.”—Kirkus ★ Starred Review

“[A] clear environmental message about how damaging plastic is to our environment. Isley’s earnest persistence to get rid of plastic is admirable. For libraries in need of a strong environmental message for their youngest readers.” —School Library Journal

“Every aspect of the book’s illustrations is created from plastic except for the sand, which Fullerton imported from P.E.I….The result is visually stunning…”—Quill & Quire

“The vibrant, richly coloured illustrations are lush and beautifully textured, and the fact that Fullerton used repurposed plastic to create them increases their impact…[T]his vivid and inspiring book is a compelling call to action and a powerful reminder that we can—and must!—all make a difference.”—Atlantic Books

No More Plastic is an inspiring story of perseverance with an important lesson that one little person can make a big difference. The intriguing illustrations—diorama art made out of plastic waste, sand, and moss—help tell the story and drive home the message.”—Hakai Magazine

“[T]he use of diorama art made from plastic waste by the illustrator… really brought the book full circle… Isley is in all of us.”—Mrs. Book Dragon

“The illustrations in this fun picture book were made from plastic waste, and I found that amazing. I recommend this book. I read it multiple times and noticed new things in the illustrations each time!”—Viviane – age 9, Kids’ BookBuzz

“An empowering story about a girl who finds a way to make a difference in her community, with information that may inspire kids to take action themselves.”—A Kids Book A Day

“[A]n important picture book which delivers a vital message that cannot be ignored any longer. Highly recommended!”—Metroland Toronto
