Arktel: The planet only children could save is a beautifully illustrated book by Menkit Prince.
It’s about three planets: Tarjez, Arktel and Earth. On planet Tarjez, we fast forward to what could happen if we keep going the way we are on Earth i.e. total destruction.
Children from Arktel witnessed the destruction of Tarjez and decided to take action because they saw similar trends happening in their world that could lead to Arktel’s destruction.
The Arktel website is not only about the book but also about how children here can save our planet. It’s honest and straight-forward as well as being a brilliant educational resource for children, their carers and their teachers. It’s a heavy subject but unless we look it straight in the eye and acknowledge the crisis we are facing, we will never overcome it. This book and its associated website challenges us not to get depressed but to do something about it.
