If Animals Disappeared

Written and illustrated by Lily Williams, If Animals Disappeared is an engaging series of picture books about wildlife conservation and the ramifications of species extinction. Williams’s simple text and vivid illustrations imagine a world without certain animals, and allow inquiring young minds to learn about our beautiful planet and the delicate balance of various ecosystems. If Elephants Disappeared explores the iconic, lovable animal and the harmful effects of poachers. If Sharks Disappeared draws attention to over-fishing while demonstrating how all animals are vital to our survival—even the scary ones.

“A solid addition to the climate-change canon for those interested in saving a fragile world.” Kirkus Reviews on If Polar Bears Disappeared.
