More About the Author

Ian James Corlett began telling stories at a very young age. He started with hand puppets and marionettes, which segued to a ventriloquist dummy, which leap-frogged into making animated films, then evolved into student comedy shorts, then led to creating and writing animated series' and then writing this book.

Ian has written for, and/or developed many popular children's series' such as The Adventures of Paddington Bear, Rolie Polie Olie, Lunar Jim and Rescue Heroes. He has also created several original series including his namesake show, BEING IAN.

Ian is also a very well-known voice actor in the world of animation, entertainment and advertising. He is the voice of literally hundreds of animated characters including "Baby Taz" of the Baby Looney Toons, "Dad" in Johnny Test, "Cheetor" of Transformers/Beastwars fame and a dozen different characters including "Mr. Pop" in Dragontales. He has been the TV promo voice of Family Channel, PBS and Fox Kids, as well as commercial brands like BestBuy, McDonalds and VISA.

Ian's one "vice" as he calls it, is a love of automobiles. His secret desire is to be a professional race-car driver and participates in enthusiast events throughout the Northwest in his Porsche (a car which he is keen to point out is also practical enough to take his kids to school in). Do we sense a hint of rationalization?

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Dad of Divas TOP 500 REVIEWER on August 12, 2011
Format: Paperback
In the forward, Ian admits he was not one to use reusable bags when shopping, conserving resources, or using energy efficient vehicles. Contact with a young man named Matty changed all that . Matty and his girlfriend traveled all over North America promoting environmentality. Ian changed his attitude and wrote this book.

I will share two of the stories he included:

IT'S IN THE BAG: Dad brought Lucy and Elliott to the grocery store. They found organic pasta sauce and vegetables, but when they arrived at the checkout Dad had no bags. Luckily Lucy brought grocery bags from home. Following this story , Ian include family discussion questions. He also included a quote by Vincent Van Gogh; Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.

LOOK AT LIFE FROM BOTH SIDES NOW: Lucy loved to create. She used pencils, crayons, and paper. She noticed she often did not use both sides of the paper and sometimes she threw away her pencils and crayons. She decided to change. Lucy revised her approach to her creative projects. She began to use both sides of her paper and all of her pencils and crayons until she could not use them anymore. There are discussion questions at the end of the story. Ian included this quote by Pablo Picasso: Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.

There are a total of 26 stories in this book. Each one is excellent in its topic and discussion questions. I feel the book will definitely assist your family in moving toward using our environment and the resources we more wisely.

This book is excellent. I read it to my students because it reads to them on their level. It gives 26 morals or ethical terms to help students understand better what they mean! It poses questions and gives examples for all 26. This is a must have in a classroom and for every mother or father who care to teach morals! One of the best books I have owned!

I love the format of bringing the point across by way of two kids. My daughter loved to listen to the stories which are luckily the right length (not too preachy and long). It has questions in between the story that make the kids pause and think.
Only con (as an adult) the kids come across as super smart and they always know the answers!!

Sometimes the facts and numbers at the end of the chapter are too much for my 6 year old to understand. But this a book that you will re-read so at 8 she will get more out of it !!
