When our brave superhero rushes off to help, he finds himself on a major mission: saving sea creatures from plastic waste. Using his incredible powers, Captain Green promises to save the day. But can he clean up this mess for good?

Find out how you can be a hero too. Superpowers are not required; anyone can do it…

About the Author

Evelyn Bookless grew up on a lovely farm in the west of Ireland. She is a nature lover, mum, teacher and writer. Evelyn adored reading so she studied English at university. She then had a career in IT before deciding to train as a primary school teacher. She loves to work with children and enjoys seeing the world through their eyes. Evelyn has taught in inner city London, as well as internationally, in Hong Kong and Singapore (where she currently resides).

Evelyn loves the water. Her first-time diving was at The Great Barrier Reef. It blew her mind (but thankfully she made a full recovery!). Saddened by the amount of plastic waste she has seen in the ocean, Evelyn wrote Captain Green and the Plastic Scene. She is passionate about raising awareness of environmental issues among children and she believes that children can make an enormous difference in their homes, schools and communities due to their genuine concern for the world around them.

About the Illustrator

Danny Deeptown is a professional freelance illustrator living in South Wales, UK. Some might say he is an endangered species as he is not seen by many, but the truth is he is an elusive creature who is most often found in his studio drawing away for long periods of time with wildlife documentaries on in the background and his cat, Bernie, for company.

Being obsessed with wildlife from a young age, Deeptown found his love of drawing through hours of copying scientific illustrations from books of animals and dinosaurs. Heavily influenced by classic book illustration, Danny's love of ink and watercolour and eccentricity of line is very evident in his work. He has a real passion for good ol' drawing and whilst he is most happy working traditionally, his more recent works combine a mixture of traditional and digital media to add texture and vibrancy to gain originality. This has added a new contemporary freshness to his work. As character plays a vital role in his illustrations, he feels it is vital that a character is believable, full of life and behaves in a way children can really relate to.

When not in his studio, Danny likes to spend his time adventuring and seeking out new places relatively remote in nature. He is happiest in a secret place surrounded by trees with passing water where he can sit and reflect with his son, River, and tell him “That's what you're named after.” On these days, he occasionally tries to sneak off in search for some quiet time with his sketchbook.
