A Gambian woman who inspired Wisconsin author Miranda Paul’s picture book, ONE PLASTIC BAG, is being hailed as a “climate hero,” according to an SCBWI-Wisconsin Facebook posting.
Here’s a link to the documentary, ISATOU CEESAY, QUEEN OF PLASTIC RECYCLING IN THE GAMBIA: http://climateheroes.org/portfolio-item/isatou-ceesay-queen-plastic-recycling-gambia/
Miranda’s debut picture book ONE PLASTIC BAG and her subsequent WATER IS WATER: A BOOK ABOUT THE WATER CYCLE were published this year. Her WHOSE HANDS ARE THESE? A COMMUNITY HELPER GUESSING BOOK is due out in January and her TRAINBOTS is scheduled for release in June.
