‘A New Day’ is a wordless picture book about a form of environmental pollution that we all experience and witness on practically a daily basis, littering.

litter to the perpetrator of the littering through the use of colour.
My hope is that people of all ages can connect with this wordless, slightly surreal story that ultimately has a hopeful ending
