“Unique, entertaining and educational, Taylor Barton’s Pedro ‘n’ Pip will provide opportunities for discussion and learning and so would be ideal for use in class and as part of young students’ studies.”
Pedro ‘n’ Pip is a raucous, uplifting rock ‘n’ roll odyssey about a tenacious ten-year-old girl, named Pip, and a ‘rockoctopus’, Pedro, who she meets while scuba diving after an oil spill in the Gulf. Together, they forge a powerful friendship and unite sea creatures and landlubbers alike to help clean up our waters for the good of all. A funny, tender, courageous story meant to raise environmental awareness in our kids.
