Prince Charles has written a Ladybird book on climate change, a co-author has revealed.
The Prince of Wales, who has spoken out about man-made climate change on many occasions, has taken on the challenges and possible solutions in the book aimed at adults, according to reports.
He wrote the book with Tony Juniper, a former Friends of the Earth director, and Emily Shuckburgh, a Cambridge University climate scientist.
“I hope we’ve managed to paint a vivid picture, and like those iconic titles from the 60s and 70s, created a title that will stand the test of time.”
Ladybird books traditionally targeted children but has recently found success with a range of humorous books for adults, the Press Association reported.
Rowland White, a publishing director with Penguin, which produces Ladybird books, told the Sunday Times that Clarence House approached the publisher with the idea.
“It was a coincidence where we were thinking about a new series for adults after the huge success of the spoof books, but this time wanted some factual books by experts on science, history and arts subjects,” he said.
