A fun, wildly original, fact-packed and beautifully illustrated book by the Sears brothers, revealing our giant species as we’ve never seen ourselves before and showing us how – together – we can do a better job of looking after the planet.

Meet the mega human: colossal, clueless … and the biggest hope for life on earth

There are eight billion of us humans.

All breathing, eating, fidgeting and thinking deep thoughts.

It’s an unimaginably large number. Or is it?

The mega human is the result of smooshing all the people in the world together into one spectacular giant (don’t try this at home). Even though the mega human is not the smartest of creatures, it is slowly beginning to understand the problems it has created for Planet Earth’s future … and how it might be able to fix them.

Making use of brain-bending stats and smoosh theory, The Biggest Footprint is a journey of self-discovery suitable for anyone and everyone identifying as human.

“In this creatively presented book about climate change, the Sears effectively personalise the issue for young readers … the visually engaging interplay between image and fact makes the message of this unique book extremely digestible”
Irish Times

“This fascinating, accessible and funny book uses statistics to present the challenges of climate change in a brand-new light. A completely original concept and beautifully illustrated too”
Great British Life

“Many readers will be drawn into its story by the illustrations and comic narrative diversions, but they will soon discover that they are reading a book with historical and contemporary depth”
Irish Times

“A beautifully creative and enlightening book … Y5 and Y6 in particular are going to be obsessed with this book”

“Innovative and clever, the Sears brothers write and illustrate about this thought experiment with extraordinary elan and flair”
