The Great Fruit Adventure

When Max visited a school in Marrakesh at the start of his trip it coincided with the worlds Climate Change Conference being held in the city.

He challenged the children to come up with a picture of what climate change meant to them. The entries were sent to Max in the UK and we picked a winner!

We are delighted to announce that TISSLAST FAEAH won with this lovely picture - they will be seeing their design in one The Great Fruit Adventure books (due out soon). Well done TISSLAST! And many thanks to Elana Shabaily for setting up the school visit for The Great Fruit Adventure trip!
