What will Captain Polo and his friend Penguin find when they get to the haunted mansion on the hill?
Captain Polo and the Halloween Party is a fun-packed story picture book for kids aged 6 to 8 similar in style to popular halloween books such as Room on the Broom, The Roll Away Pumpkin and Creepy Carrots.
Captain Polo and Penguin are super excited: they’ve been invited to a Halloween party! For them, this is a first. And they get to wear fancy dress!
But what will they go dressed up as? And what will they encounter when they make it to the party?
Halloween is nearly here and this book will make the perfect addition to your collection of bedtime stories for kids: get your copy now!
After having developed his conservation career in such exciting places as Bolivia, Mexico, Ecuador (including the Galápagos islands) and Colombia Alan decided in August 2018 to quit his job and launch himself 100% towards his first true vocation: having by now published three full-length comic books respectively about natural history, evolution and climate change Alan's dream is to become a best-selling author of comics that combine fiction, non-fiction, humour, satire and adventure in order to educate, entertain, and inspire personal engagement towards bettering our world.
With Halloween coming up I thought I should involve Captain Polo, my main comic book character.
Inspiration for this story was lacking at first: Captain Polo is all about climate change, sustainability. How to tie this in with Halloween?
My teenage son gave me the idea: making your own Halloween costume rather than buying one is actually a form of climate action - it's all about reusing and recycling what we already have lying around the house. Did you know that the clothing industry emits more planet-warming carbon emissions than the aviation and shipping industries combined? Use your imagination and creativity to craft the best Halloween party ever - no need to buy fancy dress stuff!
And that is Captain Polo's message in this children's story.
