Interview with Talk Radio Europe
We absolutely loved this book! Our daughters cannot get enough of the silly humor inside this novel! Will be read over and over again at our home!

Norman Snodgrass saves the Green Planet by Sue Bough. One of the many joys of reading 1000 books in 1000 days has come from friends who have become authors and have kindly asked me to read their books. So, I have been delighted with the books by David Cassidy, Alun Leppitt, Richard Storry and others. Today, my daughter Emma's and son-in-law Mike's friend sent me her first book, and its wonderful. I could not help imagining seeing the world Sue has created on TV or cinema in animated form. The Green Planet may be different to our own, but there are enough parallels to see there are more lines of connection than you first realise. It's got a good plot which taps into children's concerns for the environment, well-developed quirky and memorable characters, with nice, gentle touches of humour. I particularly liked the creative use of acronyms. Norman may be an unlikely hero - clumsy, overweight and always falling over - but I hope to see more of him and I anticipate this book being the first of many. A delight and a joy.
