CHAPTER ONE

THE CLIMATE CHANGE THIEF

The tall, friendly PR lady who worked for the International Climate Change Institute gazed at the six children slouching around the futuristic reception area and sighed.

What were their parents thinking of bringing them here?

The adults were scientists from different parts of the world attending an important international conference and they had brought their kids along for the ride.

She knew that the families were planning to have various holidays once the conference was over in a couple of days. Meanwhile, she had to keep the kids amused somehow.

Hi, I’m Linzi and I live in New York, announced a freckly girl with a funny grin. "I’m kinda interested, you know. I think we should all recycle and I don’t want to see animals being hurt and stuff. So, I’m happy to have a look around. My dad’s promised we can go to
