Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Watch out, water wasters! Luz and her friends are back to save the day and the earth. In this delightful sequel to Luz Sees the Light (2011), Luz, Rob, and Anika return to help save their local pond from pollution and the neighborhood garden from drying up. The second title in the Future According to Luz series is a great introduction to green living. In addition to cursory directions on how to recycle “greywater” using a natural water filtration system, Davila includes directions on how to create a water-wise garden. This fun, community-building story would be a great addition to environmental science curricula and might even spark a science fair project or two. Grades 4-7. --Candice Mack

Review

"... a refreshingly animated exercise in building community and awareness ..." --Kirkus Reviews

Format: Paperback
This graphic novel by Claudia Dávila tells the story of Luz, her friends and members of her community as they fight the effects of a drought. Everyone does what they can to fight the abuse of local resources and extend the life of the water they have.

The story addresses friendship and water conservation in a very comfortable manner.

The art is pleasant to look at. The expressions of the various characters are clear.

I recommend this book to young readers.

Format: Paperback
What a horrible book for children. I don't want my 4 year old daughter being bombarded by evil corporations, global warming, immigration issues, and draconian measures used to fight against it. Seriously, keep your propeganda away from my kids. Unfortunately this book found its way home after a trip to the library with grandma. I got half way into the first chapter and I had to tell my little girl that we couldn't finish this book. Its a progressive's wet dream. It has everything in it, especially the part about brainwashing your child early into their groupthink mentality. Maybe the rest of the book tones it down, but that first chapter was like a two by four of liberalism to the face. No thank you. I will let my daughter grow up a little first so she at least has some skeptisism to question everything she is told or reads.
