The POWEs and The Disappearing Tusks

The POWEs and
The Disappearing Tusks

Introducing the first book
in a new series of children’s
wildlife stories the POWEs
(Protectors Of Wildlife Endangered)

The POWEs series of children’s books are about wildlife conservation and take children on adventures all around the world – each story is set in a different country and covers a different wildlife conservation issue.

The books are not only fun, they teach children about the environment, about wildlife and how they can make a difference to their world. A percentage of the profits from each book goes to wildlife charities.

The Disappearing Tusks...

In this exciting first adventure in the POWEs series, the POWEs help save elephants and rhinos by coming up with an ingenious plan.

Full of brightly coloured illustrations and many different animals this story introduces the plight facing elephants and rhinos perfectly for a young audience. An educational and entertaining story about these majestic animals, the environment they live in and the people they live along side.

20% of the profits go directly to Tusk, the Lilayi Elephant Nursery in Zambia and The Rhino Orphanage in South Africa (wildlife charities that are working to protect rhinos and elephants).

“A beautifully illustrated and written book...perfect for any child who loves wildlife and adventure.”

About the Author-Illustrator:
Imogen Taylor

Having worked for several years as a lawyer (for an international firm in London and for an environmental charity), I decided on a career change to pursue my first love - illustration and story writing.

It was very important to me that wildlife conservation was the main focus of my books and this led to the creation of The POWEs series. The characters (particularly Immy, Jonny and Moby) were inspired by a year long road trip I did some years ago around Australia with my partner in a campervan!

I feel extremely lucky to be doing what I love - raising awareness and funds for wildlife conservation through my illustrations and stories!

I believe, that for success in the conservation of our wilderness and endangered species, we have to engage with children as young as those who are just starting school.

My Review:

Amanda and I both enjoyed the first zany adventure of The POWEs and The Disappearing Tusks. POWEs stands for Protectors of Wildlife Endangered. In the team is Immy and Jonny who are both 7 years old. Then there is a little dragon friend named Shu and a butterfly named Boffy. Even the campervan is part of the team and his name is Moby.

We liked the illustrations and the creative ideas that the POWEs team come up with. We were impressed to find a kid-friendly map of the world with Africa highlighted. It's a great way to introduce kids to where the African elephant and rhino come from. Sadly, both the elephant and rhino are endangered because of evil people, called poachers, who kill them for their tusks and horns. The kids and their friends have to find a way to stop the poachers.

Every page has something fun and interesting with some great learning moments too! Besides learning where Africa is on the map and about poachers, kids also get introduced to a few Swahili words. The last page also has lots of interesting facts about elephants and rhinos.

This is a great book for girls and boys ages 5 - 9.

She asked us to donate the book to a local library once we were finished with
