About the Book

Discover the amazing story of our home planet – as told by Earth itself – by award-winning duo Mike Barfield and Jess Bradley.

Welcome to Earth – the planet we call home. From its very earliest beginnings 4.5 billion years ago to the birth of life, rise of biodiversity and the myriad creatures and lush landscapes that cover its surface – it’s ALL here!

Planet Earth: My Life So Far is a comic-style, first-person account by Earth itself of its own life story. It includes the formation of Earth and the Moon, Earth’s geographical and geological features, its habitats, life forms past and present, and the challenges it faces today. Planet Earth is written in Mike Barfield’s hilarious style and accompanied by Jess Bradley’s quirky and colourful comic-strip illustrations. Perfect for fans of the award-winning A Day in the Life… series.
