About this title


Captain Eco teaches children how they can help save the planet, discussing such issues as energy conservation, animal rights, recycling, and global warming

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-3-- A gaudy, indignant indictment of our destructive ecological practices in large comic-book format. Globe-headed, caped Captain Eco snags two ``standard'' young people and takes them on a tour through the evils of industrial, nuclear, and energy waste; automobiles; pollution; junk food (including meat); animal abuse; rain forest destruction; and overpopulation. The Captain points the finger of blame at ``bonehead'' capitalists and poor government policies alike, seasons his accusations with specific examples, and offers glib remedies--``The planet would be a lot better off if things were built to last, like they used to be.'' The hand-lettered text flows naturally through Nadler's many small, brightly colored cartoon panels; the pages are crowded, but not confusingly so. Captain Eco fades away at the end, leaving behind a simple program of action plus a list of addresses. A good, if strident, consciousness-raiser for younger readers, gateway to 50 Simple Things Kids Can Do to Save the Earth (Andrews & McMeel, 1990) and others. --John Peters, New York Public Library
