Dear Greenpeace book. Reluctantly I resorted to just jotting down the bibliographic details and stuffing away the paper with an epic sigh.

Dear Mr. com User, April 26, 2002. Do you like to write letters? If you do you should read Dear Mr. Blueberry by Simon James. This is a great story about a little girl named Emily that writes letters back and forth with her teacher. This book has super pictures and some great information about whales.

Worried that the whale living in her pond is unhappy, Emily writes to Greenpeace, who, though offering the best of advice, insist that it is impossible for a whale to live in a pond. Undeterred, Emily continues to seek the best course of action for her beloved whale, finally setting him free.

Simon James’ first book was the outrageously funny, ‘The Day Jake Vacuumed’, quickly followed by two more books about Jake. My Friend Whale’, was the first of several concerned with a child’s relationship with the natural world – ‘Dear Greenpeace’, ‘Sally and the Limpet’, ‘The Wild Woods’ and ‘The Birdwatchers’ have established Simon as one of the country’s leading author/illustrators

From an early age, he spent much of his time drawing and stapling stories into little books. His father had lots of books on cartoonists, many of whom Simon tried to copy.

  • When I saw Dear Greenpeace at the library this week, from the title and cover alone I was sold! I am weak for picture books that raise awareness on the importance of nature and our planet, and help our kids to feel responsible for it.

    This book does just that.

    Dear Greenpeace by Simon James is a charming story about a little girl, Emily, who discovers (or thinks) there’s a whale in her pond. She writes to Greenpeace letting them know, and asks for more information on whales so she can take good care of it.

    Through her correspondence exchange with Greenpeace, Emily learns a lot about whales while Greenpeace insists there couldn’t possibly be a whale in Emily’s pond. But by the end of the story, we clearly feel Emily’s deep love for the whale (and whales in general) when she sees him one last time, and can finally see a once doubtful Greenpeace become more open-hearted, regardless of how unbelievable Emily’s story is.

    After having read this book quite a few times, my son, upon learning about what happens to dolphins in captivity, comes up to me and says, “Mom, when I grow up, I want to join Greenpeace.”

  • This book was so cute. It's a whimsical and endearing story of a girl who discovers a whale in her tiny backyard pond. Confused, she writes to Greenpeace, who take her seriously enough to write back, but not seriously enough to believe her story. I love that the girl continues to write back even though Greenpeace has dismissed her assertion that a whale lives in her backyard, and then that Greenpeace writes back even though her story is preposterous. The ending is touching and sweet, the pictures are lovely and funny, and it has a good moral about the enduring bonds of friendship and the possibility of impossible things. The epistolary style keeps it engaging throughout. It's a great find!

  • What on earth?!! I have been using Dear Mr. Blueberry for years with my students to teach letter writing and, incidentally, about whales. It has been changed and re-issued as Dear Greenpeace! I think the story is still good, but I can't figure out why they did this. I do think it takes away a little of the human connection of the letters.
