The Wizard Who Saved the World is a book that inspires, encourages, educates and provokes desire for further research in order to find solutions to the reality in which we live. Its reading is not only easy and pleasant, but in every single page you can find a box with clear and precise scientific information that makes the reader think about how we are treating our planet.
An excellent and innovative idea of the author to address scientific problems of urgent solution in a simple story, leading us to a magical world where all of us are involved and engaged in the struggle for a big change.

Bennett masterfully intertwines the story of the daydreaming Diego with accurate-yet-simple descriptions of the key aspects of global warming. In a nontechnical, intuitive way, Bennett manages to cover things like greenhouse-gas physics and climate modeling, yet not get in the way of Diego's story of discovery. So the pages keep turning, and the the child keeps learning. And the adults/older kids learn, too -- as in all of the Big Kid Science books, Bennett includes sidebars that explore in somewhat more detail (and at higher grade level) the notions being touched upon in the main narrative. All the while, Roberta Collier-Morales's bold, dreamy illustrations welcome the eyes.
Anyone uncertain of the key issues of global warming can gain from this book, and those of us with some grasp of the issue can simply enjoy it. Most importantly, my six-year-old daughter loved it. I highly recommend the book.
