Ammu and her friends haven’t heard
That bags get stuck in the guts of birds...
So when she leaves her plastic bottle boat to bob its way from stream to sea, Ammu has no idea what dangers she has set adrift. She doesn’t know that her boat might end up in the belly of a whale. Or that there’s a fish or seal about to eat its very last meal of a plastic cap or bag or spoon.

In verse that lightly follows the journey of Ammu’s bottle boat, award-winning writer Niveditha Subramaniam evokes the casual carelessness with which we destroy the natural world. Aindri C’s illustrations underline that horror with a clever spin on a traditional art form. The fish and sea creatures used as printing plates in the Japanese art of ‘Gyotaku’ are replaced here with plastic objects like bottle caps and bubble wrap – and the displacement of nature with modern-day trash is complete.
