    A beautifully illustrated and written book about the powes’ first adventure. My kids age 6 and 10 loved reading about the lovely characters and animals plus it’s a gentle introduction into wildlife and conservation. The perfect book for any child who loves wildlife and adventure. And with 20% going to charities for each book sold its making a real difference too.

    My son (aged 3) loves this book! When I ask him what book he wants me to read him, he just says “elephants! elephants!” or more like “elepants! “elepants!”
    It’s a beautiful book. Great conservation message.

    Amanda and I both enjoyed the first zany adventure of The POWEs and The Disappearing Tusks. POWEs stands for Protectors of Wildlife Endangered. In the team is Immy and Jonny who are both 7 years old. Then there is a little dragon friend named Shu and a butterfly named Boffy. Even the campervan is part of the team and his name is Moby.

    We liked the illustrations and the creative ideas that the POWEs team come up with. We were impressed to find a kid-friendly map of the world with Africa highlighted. It’s a great way to introduce kids to where the African elephant and rhino come from. Sadly, both the elephant and rhino are endangered because of evil people, called poachers, who kill them for their tusks and horns. The kids and their friends have to find a way to stop the poachers.

    Every page has something fun and interesting with some great learning moments too! Besides learning where Africa is on the map and about poachers, kids also get introduced to a few Swahili words. The last page also has lots of interesting facts about elephants and rhinos.

    This is a great book for girls and boys ages 5 – 9.

    We have a new favorite book! Take a child and mold them into the human this world needs. Sew seeds of humanity and kindness. Look after our animal friends. Stand up for the endangered. The POWEs – thank you for this amazing book that says so much to young minds that ultimately have the power to change it!

    The best time to start teaching a child how to care for the planet they live on is NOW.

    Got the book Imogen! So cute! Love what you are doing.

    It’s that moment when you get WOKE about our planet and how important it is to protect our animals! This book is an awesome and inspiring adventure about just that by The POWEs! #kidswhocare
