Overview

Gary The Go-Cart: Carbon Comes Out of the Closet by B. B. Denson, Sidnei Marques

"Carbon Comes out of the Closet" is a fun story, written in poetry with rhyme and cadence. It is illustrated by the late, great award-winning Sidnei Marques, who passed away shortly after completing the illustrations for this book.

This book is educational too, in that it shows how carbon dioxide is actually good for the environment. It presents a side of the climate change argument that isn't often heard. The book can be read on one level to a child, and on a much deeper level by a teenager or an adult. It will likely make you laugh out loud.

The Gary the Go-Cart series was written to balance the conversation surrounding energy and the environment. BB simplifies some rather complicated ideas about energy and climate change. This book is considered informational fiction or informative fiction.

About the Author

After graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in Civil Engineering, BB began her career in Lafayette, Louisiana as an engineer for Amoco in 1980. A true passion for the environment led her to begin working for an environmental science company, which is where she has been for the last several years. In 2016 BB began writing children's books about the energy industry because she believes that there is much misinformation about how the oil and gas industry is bad for the environment and hopes to educate kids and parents alike with fun stories that are factually accurate. BB is married to Al H Denson and they have four daughters. She had no idea that life would take her in this direction, but she is enjoying the ride and hopes you are too.

Mr. Marques had been a graphic designer since 1980. He began his career in Newark, N.J.
His work included airbrushing in canvas and on walls. Mr. Marques designed for multiple newspapers and magazines in Brazil. He was the winner of numerous cartoon competitions in Russia, Germany, London and Brazil. Mr. Marques passed away four days after completing this book.

"All carbon's not pollution. We need carbon to thrive." Oh, the wisdom of Gary the Go-Cart! Parent, read the book to your children, and read the section in the back "For the Adults in the Room." This author knows what she is talking about!
