Loll Kirby has spent many years being inspired by young people, through her work as a primary school teacher and forest school leader and from spending every day with her three lovely sons. She believes that children have the very best ideas and that they're never too small to start making a difference. Loll likes kindness, dark chocolate buttons and spotting interestingly shaped clouds while out running in Leamington Spa, where she lives with her family. Loll wrote this book - as well as her first book 'Old Enough to Save the Planet' - for anyone who wants to make positive changes in the world. Yas Imamura is an Asian American illustrator who has done work for clients like An-thropologie, Sanrio and Papyrus. She also owns a greeting card shop called Quill & Fox which has been a delightful pursuit of infusing humour and fun quips into her drawings. As a child, Yas has always been fond of doodling, and much to the dismay of her parents, on surfaces she shouldn't-like the treasured pages of children's books. Much of her work now draw inspiration from those same books she enjoyed as a kid, her art evolving into an amalgamation of both the timeless and modern. Her preferred materials are gouache and watercolour and often finds herself drawn to projects that are playful and a little offbeat.

Reviews for Do Something for Someone Else

For first title, Old Enough to Save the Planet: * A marvellous book... HIghly recommended for readers from around 7 years upwards. * Just So Stories * Highly recommended... an important book that may inspire more children to follow in the footsteps of these young climate change activists. * ReadPlus * I love how a positive, contagious voice and succinct writing style is combined with beautifully detailed illustrations. Each spread tells its own story, bursts of inspiration and shows children that they too can make a difference; even at a young age * Kids Book Review *
