The irresistible picture books and novels that make up The Adventures of Cosmo – Our Hero of the Environment have been a smash success in Quebec, and they are now available to readers in English. Cosmo is a dodo who was born on the island of Mauritius. But the fearless, flightless birds were no match for humans and their guns, and about three hundred years ago, dodos became extinct. Cosmo is the last of his kind, and since he knows firsthand the toll that people can take on Earth’s species, he becomes a champion of the environment.
In this critically acclaimed new series, Cosmo’s adventures take him through space on his mission. Part adventure, part message, and all fun, The Adventures of Cosmo – Our Hero of the Environment are perfect ways to introduce children to positive action on behalf of our planet.
Hailing from Quebec, Patrice Racine (Pat Rac) is the creator and illustrator of the Adventures of Cosmo The Dodo Bird series. As a father of four, Patrice wishes that these books make young people aware of the importance their actions have on the environment. He hopes kids have as much fun reading Cosmo’s adventures as he does creating them.
