An understanding of how fragile the environment is, and the pervasiveness of plastic pollution in the air, land and sea.

BJ Chen delights young readers who are into ancient Egypt, space and time travel, with the release of her book “Andrew and Ham’s Space Adventures” (published by Balboa Press AU).

This work of eco-fiction introduces Ham, an alien scientist who adopts the appearance of a large housecat, who seeks out Andrew, an inquisitive 12-year-old boy, to travel back in time in ancient Egypt to help capture a dangerous creature that threatens their species. In a practice time travel run, they arrive in 2099 to find the Earth inundated with plastic pollution that threatens all mankind. They persuade a scientist in the future to return with them to the present to help prevent the plastic pollution that will imperil the future Earth.

“Andrew and Ham’s Space Adventures” is a fun and adventurous tale that uniquely combines the theme of pollution and the environment with time travel and history. It touches on a topic that is widely known and will particularly appeal to those who are concerned about the environment.

When asked what she wants readers to take away from the story, the author says, “An understanding of how fragile the environment is, and the pervasiveness of plastic pollution in the air, land and sea.”
