Through this very simple, yet intriguing, concept the reader will experience the intensely real but often ignored political and environmental truths of our era. It's funny, poignant and painfully true.
Tracking everything from the very beginning of evolution to the industrial revolution, from the Cold War to the oil wars, no aspect of world history is too challenging for Polyp.
Published in association with Friends of the Earth International, this is a celebration of human resistance, ingenuity and bravery in the face of war, greed, and environmental pillage. And the full-colour cartoon novel contains a hidden internal book - a further distillation of world history into a penetrating parable.
