“In Ashley Ivanov’s ebook From Pristine to Earth, Marlo, a middle school student and resident of the planet Pristine, is sent to Earth to explore its environment for a school project. With no gar­bage in Pristine, you can imag­ine his surprise upon arriving in a land­fill. Through a series of adventures and misad­ventures, Marlo learns of the impact of plastics on the environment. The book also mentions issues such as the greenhouse effect and its impact on humans and the physical environ­ments. We follow Marlo as he works with his new-found friends to change the attitudes of people, governments and industries. This book is geared towards middle school students, has some humorous sections and would provide a fun alternative to traditional teachings on these issues. – (EJ)”
