The Green Book | Jill Paton Walsh

Pattie and her family are among the last refugees to flee a dying Earth in an old spaceship. And when the group finally lands on the distant planet which is to be their new home, it seems that the four-year journey has been a success. But as they begin to settle this shiny new world, they discover that the colony is in serious jeopardy. Nothing on this planet is edible, and they may not be able to grow food. With supplies dwindling, Pattie and her sister decide to take the one chance that might make life possible on Shine.

Going with titles instead of covers for #readingresolutions #green—I have a lot of “green” titles on my shelves! The tagged is a short, intriguing little sci-fi book I remember reading as a kid. It‘s an account of a group of refugees fleeing our dying planet and trying to survive on the planet they call Shine. There‘s a neat little twist at the end.

BarbaraJean @rubyslippersreads I still need to read it! Hoping to get to it in September, before a trip to Wales in October. 😊 @MommyWantsToReadHerBook I haven‘t yet! I always think of you when I see her books—I remember how much you love her! What are your thoughts on this one? @emilyhaldi Thank you! (edited) 12mo

Starting with one of the shorter books from my stack for the #throwbackreadathon. The #LittleDude is bright eyed and bushy tailed right now so I‘m reading it aloud to him while we snuggle. Hopefully he‘ll doze off soon but until then, he‘s the cutest reading buddy on the block.

I know it's become hugely popular, but when I first started reading post-apocalyptic & dystopian fiction at the tender age of seven in the late 1980s, it was definitely #notyournormalgenre.... & to be fair, I still read more of it than the average reader. #whatcanisay #imdarkandtwistylikethat #thisshelfismissingabouttenfavesthatareoutonloan #alsomissingmykindlebooksfromthissubgenre

I can't believe the Lincoln County School District of Newport, Oregon marked this incredible #speculative book OUTDATED. This book is a gem & they were fools to discard it. That said, I'm glad they did so I could snag this #usedbook find via Amazon because now it is has a loving home where it is appreciated. Same edition my mother read me as a child. #booksarefriends #sciencefictionforchildren #iseriouslyLOVEthisbook #itwasmy1stspeculativefiction

lauren.lerner OMG - this book was published the year I was born. DOES THIS MEAN I AM ALSO OUTDATED??? 💀📖😱 (edited) 2y

Probably the first truly speculative book I ever read, this slim kid lit novel is a lifelike yet beautifully simple exploration of survival on a strange world with strange lifeforms (and dangerously little supplies).

The reread as an adult was still satisfying.
