Friends Ahmed, Sundos, Rudi, Finlay and Maria want to look after the environment and save the planet through recycling, energy and water conservation and reducing food waste and plastic use.
In this second book in the five-book series, the friends embark on a picnic in a local park and make the best chocolate cake the UAE has ever seen.
Fight for Food features brilliant illustrations, recognisable local landmarks and, more importantly, critical lessons on the importance of food and how it relates to the environment around us.
The first project by Save Our World, The Eco-heroes is aimed at younger schoolchildren to highlight several topical environmental, cultural and social issues. The books are published sustainably and feature the Dubai font.
