Book Review - ping: The Rescue of Eden by Stuart Avery Gold

Book Review
Ping the Rescue of Eden
ping: The Rescue of Eden
An eco-parable about climate change and the inner
responsibility to the outside world
by Stuart Avery Gold

Book Description
An eco-parable about climate change and the inner responsibility to the outside world. Ping returns in this third adventure with a traveler's tale that is both timely and necessary. Ping is troubled by disturbing indications of growing imbalances in Eden Pond that compel him to embark on his greatest journey yet: to help guide a stricken world back to the path of harmony. Ping and the Rescue of Eden is sure to stir the reader to think about the world and their place in it. An enchanting cautionary parable for this time and for all time.

Our Book Review
A very awe inspiring book even though it is only 84 pages long. This is the only book I have read in the series but will definitely look out for the others and read them.

The clever use of using Ping the frog to notice and act on the changes that happen around his pond is appealing to any reader.  As other animals arrive he asks them while on their travels if they have spotted any differences, especially his long time friend Kamo,  the duck, and together form an alliance to put it back as it should be.

The message from the book is a simple one, Mother Nature has ruled and governed the earth well before man and she knows how to solve the problems without any intervention. On the other side of the coin is that someone will do what they think is right for themselves without thinking about the consequences of their actions on others.

A book that everyone should read and it might change their views and help create a better world for everyone. The language and simple explanations make an excellent read and I think it should be introduced to the school curriculum and if the other books are as good as this one, they should be too. The book will cause a lot of debate regarding the best way forward for the planet and nature over money? Please read this book!

  1. I too like the use of Ping the Frog - who would want to see such a cute animal go extinct! I also agree that books like this should be used in various curriculum.

  2. Interesting - have never heard of the author before. Sounds like a good read, and I agree with you: definitely sounds suitable for school reading!

  3. It does sound a very clever and interesting read, and something you could probably do in one sitting.


  4. I never heard of this author before, but I love the fact he is trying to raise awareness about nature and just how much damage is being done. I live in a really small town in PA, I'm surrounded by trees and nature. Most weeks I see more deer then people and its normal to walk out on my porch at night and have to go back in because some critter is noising around :). Sometimes its easy to forget the promblem when my little slice of the world is still surrounded by nature and all its beauty. In 2012 I went to New York for a Christmas show and was shocked that very little to no nature existed!
    I def. want to read this book and even share it with my son.

  5. I know I would enjoy this book (I do have an environmental science degree!). I will go and check it out-it is definitely on my tbr list.

  6. This is kind of like a new spin on the Lorax. Interesting way of sharing a mission!

  7. What an interesting idea and perspective. This sounds worth reading for sure.

  8. This sounds interesting and probably something I would enjoy. Thanks you for sharing.


Always lovely to hear your comments xx
