22 Modern Monsters Threatening our Environment (and What You Can Do to Defeat Them!)

Have a sneak peak look inside Planet SOS!

The fearsome Atmosdragon is heating the planet and causing global warming, while the bright-eyed Glareworm is busy creating light pollution and the Smogosaurus is filling our air with toxic fumes. Each of these beasts is wreaking havoc on our planet and we need heroes – could you be one of them?

In all, 22 monsters are featured in Planet SOS and each of them is accompanied by a Monster Card outlining the big, bad beasts’ weaknesses and how to use each one to your advantage. Mythical monsters have always represented humanity’s greatest fears, and the environmental monsters in Planet SOS are no different. Each is paired with the mythological beast it is based on.

Planet SOS is the perfect handbook for any eco-hero who wants to learn about our global environmental crisis!
