天空膠雨 Tin Hong Gaau Jyu (Plastic, plastic, every where!)
Joint Publishing, Hong Kong


Tin Hong Gaau Jyu was a winner of the Young Writers’ Competition (Hong Kong, 2017) and was selected as one of the 50 Best Books for Secondary Students by Hong Kong Professional Teachers’ Union (2018.)​


The dystopian cautionary tale tells a future where the frenzy of human plastic consumption (as in lifesaver donuts, telephone hotdogs…) has led us past the point of no return. This global craze originates from the 2084 annual meeting of the Great Five Industrial Nations. At the meeting, imaginary country Contradictoria (in the form of a pig) proposes that if animals can learn to eat plastic, why can’t children?​


I recreated a fantastic world as a site for the readers to draw their own conclusions on the consequences of modern society’s feverish consumption and irresponsible disposal of plastic. Miss Dodo, an heiress-cum-young-teacher, meets a hundred-year-old sea turtle (possibly the last one on earth) on her saga to seek a world with no plastic.​


The book features an 18,000-word story (in Chinese) and roughly 80 hand-drawn images.

The book comes in 100% plastic-free packaging. If you prefer to have a protective plastic sleeve on your book, please make a special note in your order. I reuse packing materials as much as possible.
