Most know of Greta Thunberg, the young Swedish activist who has been delivering a determined plea to world leaders to take immediate action on global warming.

Her recently published book, No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference, poignantly sums up her message.

“We children are not sacrificing our education and our childhood for you to tell us what you consider is politically possible in the society that you have created … We children are doing this to wake the adults up. We children are doing this for you to put your differences aside and start acting as you would in a crisis. We children are doing this because we want our hopes and dreams back.”

The book is based a selection of Thunberg’s key speeches, the first given shortly after her first climate strike, and the most recent in the UK parliament last spring. The book takes its title from a speech Thunberg made at the COP24 UN climate talks.

Penguin described her as “the voice of a generation facing the full force of climate catastrophe … quiet, angry and unafraid, speaking truth to power.”

“She calls for change at the highest level – and because her message is so urgent, and so essential, we are working to make it available to as many readers as we can, as quickly as we possibly can. This little book will document an extraordinary, unprecedented moment in our history, and invite you to join in the fight for climate justice: to wake up, spread the word, and make a difference,” Chloe Currens, commission editor at Penguin told The Guardian.
