Are You Listening?


Written by Dr Alaka Rajan Skinner

This moving story has been featured on BBC Radio as well as Greenpeace Storytelling.

A bedtime tale for the young and young-at-heart, Are You Listening? is a visually striking, read-aloud story in rhyme with a powerful message about sustainability, the web of life, empathy and reimagining our relationship with nature and each other.

In a maze of tunnels in a magical forest Grandfather Squirrel tells his two grandchildren the story of the smartest animal ever to exist - human beings. When the wisdom of the adults threatens to lead to disaster and human extinction, the question is, "Can anyone save human beings from themselves?"
